spinning sunday: a handspun shawl for fair submission

Remember this yarn?

Well it's being turned into a handspun version of a BLT scarf (basic lace triangle).

See the pretty stripes! That's why I did the 3ply on the yarn. The lace holes will open up more, once it's finished and blocked. And hopefully it will earn me a blue ribbon. :-)

Last year was my first year submitting to the fair. I submitted a handspun, handknit sweater, two skeins of handspun yarn, and a handknit shawl. I won second place on all four submissions! This year, I'm hoping to up the ante a little bit and get the big prize.
