This is wonderful idea Sandy

I would like to be a part of this as well.

Do we need a specific type of yarn (all wool or mix...)
Thanks!

Hi Sandra!
Just send me a PM with your mailing address, and I'll add you to the list of knitters.

I'm thinking that the yarn should be something NICE and SOFT, that we will all appreciate. It doesn't matter what fiber we use, because we are all knitters, and would know how to take care of it. The only thing we would need to avoid is yarn that requires dry cleaning.

(We will put in a note with the shawl, including cleaning instructions.)

Thanks for joining, jeanius80!

I would think that two strands of fine fingering would work fine. One strand of DK or sportweight would work well too. We just want it to be light, soft, and beautiful.

I've been dreaming about this shawl!!!
