We've fallen head over heels for these super-cute mini-skein sets of Manos del Uruguay Fino yarns. There are five 20-gram mini-skeins of merino/silk luxury in each set that are perfect for getting your creative juices flowing for shawls, scarves, hats or mittens. Shelley used 1 skein of Manos Alegria and one mini-skein set to knit her Fealdan Shawl. The result is simply stunning, and the pattern is free on ravelry.com.
The gorgeous Interlude shawl pattern by Janina Kallio uses the Clarissa colorway and #6 32-inch circulars. The easy-to-knit garter stitch and fishnet lace pattern works up quickly into a stunning, fully-reversible and luxurious shawl for all seasons. The pattern is available for purchase on ravelry.com.
