I have to admit, the pattern

I have to admit, the pattern is nothing extraordinary...it really is the fiber and the color of the yarn that is spectacular.

The pattern design is mine and I actually wrote it up so I could sell it on The Knitting Vault:


The yarn is a fine laceweight kid alpaca from Briar Rose Fibers (her stuff is fantastic) called Angel Face:


I have two huge hanks of this stuff at home in dark manly colors that I hope to make a man's lace shawl from.

Thanks guys...it's always amazing to get kudos from the talented guys here.
