I had started something lacy before I got the splendiferous new laceweight from Carol. I cast on for the Kimono Shawl in Folk Shawls. I chose it because it's a rectangle and I wanted a rectangle. It only dawned on my later that I was using Japanese yarn to knit a "Japanese" pattern. Oy.
The yarn is "Szack" from Ami Ami. It's a two ply. The singles range in colour from light pink over a deep red to orange, so one gets very neat subtle variations when knitting it up.
