Last year I dyed up some of my Shetland Humbug fiber, one in green, and one in red. I've spun the green already, and here's the red one.
I turned this fiber into this yarn:
and wound it into a yarn cake:
to make this shawl:
So here are the specs:
yarn: 5.4oz Shetland fiber, 2-ply, ~595yds
shawl: Clothilde by Kristen Hanley Cardozo
mods: I did 3 repeats of chart 3, and since I thought it still looked a little unfinished, I added a border.
start-finish: March 2010, 22-27
size after blocking: 32" x 64"
Wanna see more pictures?

I wanted to spin some yarn to knit a shawl - mission accomplished!
