Soft and fuzzy

Shawlette, mixed fibers: wool, cotton, angora, silk, linen, rayon, nylon,  mohair; woven stitch (linen stitch); size 7 cable needle, 24 in.

I like "capelet" better than shawlette, but I thought I'd try out the new word.  I cast on 200 stitches and have made the lovely mild teal angora/cotton blend by  Elsbeth Lavold the main yarn, with about 7 other yarns in lengths around 4 to 8 feet.  I like the linen stitch effect because it blends the colors in a nice way.
