Pat's Knitting and Quilting

I wanted the perfect pattern for this wonderful handspun cashmere/silk and I found it!
Clothilde is a beautiful and well written pattern.The Gull Wing lace flows so beautifully into the Spearhead lace edging. Something about the combination of these 2 lace patterns grabbed me and I knew this was the pattern for my new yarn.
There are no words to describe the softness of this cashmere/silk fiber and the blues and greens that Jennifer used in dyeing are like the Caribbean Sea - gorgeous fiber!
Pattern: Clothilde by Kristen Hanley Cardozo.

I haven't captured the cashmere halo in these pictures, but if you click on the 2 below, you can see the soft fuzz - esp. in the last one.
I couldn't wait to start some more lace spinning - this is 100 grams of luxurious fawn suri/silk from Hubbert Farms. Can't wait to ply - I think the laceweight yarn is going to be beautiful!
AND....the fleeces are washed and dried - more on that next time...
