IOLI Class: Kelli Slack

I took knitting lace shawl class at the IOLI convention.   Taught by Kelli Slack.  
I learned so much!   Kelli provided pattern & an awesome booklet - full of information needed to make a lace shawl.   
Ilwaco Shawlette pattern, by Kelli Slack.  
I'm using us4 needles,  Simple Sock, Lilliput Yarn, color Sasha. 

Practice pieces pictured above & below.   Kelli brought yarn from her store, for us to use as practice.  That was so very helpful to me!    Her pattern is written out and in chart form.   I focused on the chart - just wanted to learn how to interpret knitting charts (in general).
(teal color yarn is Tonos Carnival sock - Misty Alpaca.  

This is a photograph of a completed shawlette - notice the waves?

 The other pattern, by Kelli Slack, that I purchased, is the Leafy Lisa shawlette & yarn.   I liked the chunky yarn & looked fun to make.   More information re. Black Sheep at Orenco's facebook page or web site.
Purchased Kelli's sock book - there are some charming patterns here ; )

purchased some xtra Lilliput yarn and project bags from the Black Sheep at Orenco vendor booth.
   yes, also gave one to our daughter (who has 2 kittys).
