 So beautiful to see- with rows of textured details, and so senuous to the touch when knit in Tenzing.

 Some Ravelry Ideas
fingering weight choices for today 


Another great Melanie Berg design using 3 colors of a fingering weight yarn.  Melanie is known for her Drachenfels- a Stunning!!! DK weight shawl.   Shown below.

We suggest Ella Rae Lace Merino, or Shalimar's Aerie. 

The beautiful Drachenfels is a DK weight shawl.  We knit ours in Silky Wool- it looks so good!

The cables on the Gregory are interesting, yet easy.  A fingering weight such as Tosh Twist Light will give this hat needed body.

Kitty Socks to knit in 2 colors of fingering weight sock yarn such as Malabrigo sock.
Trondheim Shawl (crochet) FREE
This lace shawl is crocheted in a fingering weight yarn.  Try 3 Irish Girls for great colors, or Tosh Merino Light for great drape.
