**Ravelry links for patterns**
I am currently thinking (obsessing) about knitting myself a shawl.
I have a large cone of laceweight blue yarn which I could use.
Now, after an exhaustive Ravelry search for a shawl that suits a non shawl wearing novice lace knitter, I have narrowed it down to Azzu's Shawl
However I have now (wisely) decided NOT to make do with my unknown yarn and instead treat myself (birthday in 10 days!) to a hand dyed hank from a UK indie dyer.
I've come across several in research for this venture and I wish I could see these yarns in reality without relying on product description.
I think I have settled on Artist Palette Yarns - Smoothie Sock. A charcoal and dark violet/grey non pooling mix. 75% Superwash Merino 25% Nylon 425m.
But there is Clan from Yarn Yard, shade 1664 or shade 1675. 100% merino, 210m.
or Toddy, shade 1683. 75% merino 25% nylon 420m.
