This is a shawl that I am working on for my wife. I'm using alpaca wool spun in Peru. It's a natural color with no dyes but they call it mist grey. 8oz = 665 yards. It's on size 11 circular needles and is a feather and fan pattern. This is the pattern that inspired the scarf for my mother in law that I posted yesterday. I actually started this project before the scarf, but it is so intimidating that I keep putting it off.
It is so soft to the touch and will really look nice on my wife's shoulders. It's light enough that I can imagine her being able to wear it out on a cool summer night.
The hat I'm wearing on the right is actually my 4th completed project and was also done during the making of this shawl as a distraction.
