I have to admit, the pattern is nothing extraordinary...it really is the fiber and the color of the yarn that is spectacular.

The pattern design is mine and I actually wrote it up so I could sell it on The Knitting Vault:

The yarn is a fine laceweight kid alpaca from Briar Rose Fibers (her stuff is fantastic) called Angel Face:

I have two huge hanks of this stuff at home in dark manly colors that I hope to make a man's lace shawl from.

Thanks guys...it's always amazing to get kudos from the talented guys here.

Joe, it's beautiful. How much of the yarn did it require?

Thanks Aaron...it took about 1600 yards of quite fine laceweight yarn on US3 (3.25 mm) needles.
