Triangular Lace Shawl Class

Well. I thought I was going to do the Queen of Hearts shawl for my Lace Shawl KAL and my Think Pink KAL. Then KittnKnit discovered that Needlecraft University was offering a Triangular Lace Shawl Class. This shawl can be knit in worsted weight yarn on 10.5 circular needles! I have two skeins of Caron's Rainbow Dreams Rosy Forecast (with LOTS of pink in it), and if I use it, I can use up some of my stash, which will help to satisfy my "yarn diet" criteria...as well as meeting the two KAL requirements (and I get the circular needles I've been wanting but couldn't justify!).

So who do you think bounced right up and said "Sure, Kitt, I'll take the class with you?" YUP. Me. Now I hope the Lace Shawl KAL won't hit me too hard for not working on the alpaca just yet. I think it's smarter that my first lacework be done on somewhat larger yarn...

That makes a ton of sense. I'm glad you found a class that'll help you through any rough patches. Very cool. And no, I don't think anyone will mind if you put the alpaca lace off for awhile. :)

I think it's a great choice for your first lace project. The teacher, Jackie E-S, has some really beautiful lace patterns. You can see them at http://www.heartstringsfiberarts.com/index.shtml
I'm working on the spiral nebula shawl now and I also have one of her lace smoke ring patterns.
