Tis me!

To answer some of the questions.
I used
 
Araucania Botany Lace knitting yarn Colour #1948
100g :
Length 410m  (448 yds)
 
 
It feels really warm and I have worn it all day. I had a choir rehearsal this afternoon and wore it there too!
I am knitting a pair of socks for my youngest GS but do intend to make a different pattern shawl and one that is a lot bigger. This morning I went searching for some circular needles that I had off an aunt and found an old stitching/knitting magazine dated 1991 and low and behold it had a huge section on knitting lace shawls!
I can't wait to start another one.

Lovely colours and a pretty pattern too. Once I put a woolly scarf on I can't take it off until I go to bed. They're so cosy!
