Well, I can't say I've read even half of these books, but there are some I just don't necessarily care to read, so I can't feel bad about my poor showing. There are some I might eventually read, but they're not on my "to-be-read" list, so I didn't italicize them.

I stole this from my friend, Allegra's blog, found here.

Hi! I found my way here from Wendy's blog, where you asked about what to do with a gorgeous laceweight. I just finished the Alpine Lace shawl with 60 grams of a yarn that is incredibly fine - 1800 yds/100 gms, AND subtly vareigated in blues and purples. The Alpine Lace is perfect for the yarn, because it is knit from one end to the other, with no knit-on border to make for awkard blotches of color around the edge. I used size 2 needles, and worked the shawl with 7 diamonds across instead of 6, and a few other changes.

Hi Judy-- I, too, came from Wendy's blog. I'd highly recommend the Shoalwater Shawl by fiber trends for your variegated laceweight. It creates a beautiful shawl and the color changes are an integral part of the pattern.

(I knit it myself, if you want to see an example of a highly-variegated laceweight, go to http://www.stashknitrepeat.com and click on the 2006 FO link.)

Hope this helps!

Hi, I came here from Wendy's blog too. Galina Khmeleva's involved in Skaska, isn't she? Would one of her Orenburg shawl patterns work with your yarn?

By the way, the yarn sounds beautiful...it's awesome that you were able to get so much in one ball!
