Help Please

Ok, this is my request for help today. I bought two hanks of Alpaca Cloud from Knit Picks just because I liked it, but now I'm not really sure to make with it. I'm thinking a shawl would be nice, but don't yet have a pattern I like. Any suggestions? I'd love to hear from anyone who has knitted a shawl they really enjoyed, and would like to pass a pattern along.

I have done virtually no knitting this week so far. Work has been so busy I just want to collapse on the couch every night when I get home. Every Thursday night we get together with some friends for dinner, and usually end up watching a movie or something, so it might be a good opportunity to get something done tonight. I did knit a swatch last night. I am part of the Yarn of the Month Club, and in this month's pack of samples, there was some yarn made from Recycled Sari Silk. I thought it would be great to knit up a purse for my boss for her birthday (thank goodness it's in July because I have enough projects going on now). She is a world traveller and I think she would appreciate that kind of yarn. It's beautiful, so I think I'll order the yarn so I'm ready to start when I get another project finished.

I do have some pictures of my Color on Color, but haven't had time to upload them. I'll have to get them up here soon.

Until Later, Happy Knitting!

    Hi Clara,

    Thanks for the recommendation. I have been trying to track down a back issue of Interweave for that pattern, but the bids on that magazine on E-Bay have been high. I might be willing to spend more now that I know the yarn will work.
