I am going to knit Harvest in burnt red alpaca lace weight on size US#6.
This will give me a smaller shawl but I like shawl widths in the mid to high 20's and the length in the mid 70's.
Im not sure how it will knit up in lace weight, because of the difference in yarn weights, it may be smaller anyway on the regular needles. Be sure you do the gauge swatch before you start and play with needle size....i think i would go with maybe a 7 or so....but its what you like.
but im excited to see...be sure to post pics along the way!!!
Crycket---yours isnt lace weight is it?
I know you were thinking about it...that pic doesnt look like it....you prob told me this already...
