Antonia Shawl

I have started knitting a shawl from Knitting - Delight web site. I spun the black alpaca  and plied it with an embroidery sewing thread. It is very soft and cuddly. I don't plan on selling this one because the wool took a bit of time to spin. the Alpaca cost $40.00 aus  so once it was spun and knitted its quite time consuming.I just love my Knit pick needles the are a dream to knit anything with. I gave my mother a set for her 70th last year and she is amazed how wonderful they are to knit with.
