I have knitted a pink shawl, and I like it! Who could have guessed? Pink is not a color you would think I could wear. Two yarns are handspun merino+bamboo (pink) and merino+silk (reddish). The variegated is Manos Lace, alpaca+silk+cashmere. Needles 2,5 mm. Edging from "A Gathering of Lace" or "Victorian Lace Today", I have forgotten which one. Shawl pattern "The Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief" by Orange Flower on Ravelry.
