Kirsten Kapur has some of the prettiest designs on Ravelry. One of my current favorites is Cladonia. I think I'll knit it as part of the Small Knits Knitalong (SKKAL on Twitter) that Rachellynnec on Twitter is hosting. Yes, another knitalong, but, really, who could resist knitting such a pretty shawl!
Knit from the top down, it has a large stockinette section and a comparitively smallish lace section. Perfect for sitting in carpool (the stockinette section) and night-time knitting (the lace section). I found this beautiful yarn at The Loopy Ewe:
It's Alpaca with a Twist Baby Twist in Natural and Seasprite. It is amazingly soft! 100% Alpaca, DK weight. Hand wash and dry flat. Each skein is approximately 245 grams and 549 yards, so I am hoping to make two shawls from this beautiful yarn!
