Sweet Little Shawl....

A few weeks back now I made a sweet little shawl using some of the most softest Baby Alpaca that I'd ever come across...

The shawl pattern was 'Dory' by Goodknits and the yarn was Eki Riva's 8ply in Cherry Red and Navy... I used 2 balls for the body of my shawl and not even 1/2 a ball for the edging. The combination of a beautifully written pattern and silky smooth yarn made for a completed project in only 1 night - gotta love that...

So, when some new shades of Eki Riva 8ply hit my shelves yesterday I couldn't help but dream of a new colour combo - light grey....

and baby pink.... What do you think???

To celebrate the arrival of more of this gorgeous yarn I've whacked a whopping $3 off per ball - that's over 25%!!!!!!
