I hand spun a lamb's fleece for this shawl on my production wheel, on my Ashford Kiwi and some on my Trindle drop spindle. It was all plied together on my Louet. I spun close to a pound for this shawl.
The Civil War Shawl was designed by Suzanne Puffpaff. It was published in Cast On, winter/spring 2001. There is a knit along going on at Yahoo! http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CivilWarShawlKAL/
Purl 3. Takes a little patience.
As I knit more, I will post more. I can honestly say that this is the first shawl that I have ever knit that has ribbing in it!
