Came in to work to find a pretty bag containing two balls of Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted yarn, and a lovely card from Nancy. Thank you! Cuddly soft yarn in a good colour, what in the world do I knit with it? It happened that today was a mite chilly in the office, so I'm thinking some kind of shawl. I draw the line at fringes, ponchos, and looking like an old lady, and I like cables and texture patterns. Any pattern suggestions? I've never knit a shawl in my life. I'm not afraid to try lace but the Flower Basket shawl just doesn't appeal to me.
