Hello, generous and helpful friends!
I've been totally captivated by all the beautiful shawls out there and have decided to try and make one myself. But I needs your help!
I found this yarn on ebay: Laceweight Cashmere Yarn
I'm wondering - she mentions that this retails for over $100 in stores - why is it so cheap? Should I be suspicious? How can one even be suspicious of a knitter? Knitters are all nice... right?
And I started going through all the free shawl patterns on ravelry and found one that I think looks gorgeous and still rather simple: the Pangea Shawl
My question is: Should I begin with this one?
And - that yarn up there is different to the one mentioned in the pattern. Can I still use it? Will it change the needle size I have to use, and the size of the finished item?
What did people DO before KnittingHelp.com???
