Since I don’t have angora in this colours, I just had to buy some when Leah had some from Phoebe to sales. The english angora are hand plucked and not cliped like the german we have here home, I would like to have one of this type. The hand plucking don’t heart the angora and the fur are plucked without any problem. Here is Leah’s blog where you can read about here angora’s.
I have also begin to knit some of the lace yarn I bought from Knitpicks, it is Shimmer Turquoise Splendor. I use the knitpicks needles and they are very good to knit with. The patter to the shawl doe you find here, it is just in norwegian.
