Alpaca Shawlette

What did knitters ever do before Ravelry? I guess we searched through endless magazines and books for that perfect pattern. Now inspiration is just a click away and I found the perfect pattern, Storm Cloud Shawlette. (The designer has a lovely blog worth mentioning too). I wanted something airy and small for the DK weight hand carded/spun fiber I completed from one of the alpacas (William) at Heartland Farm. This simple half-circle shawl in garter stitch shows off the natural color changes in his coat. This is just one of the shawlettes I've completed: one for me and two more to donate to the Sisters at the Farm.
