Can someone please reccomend a needle size for a shawl knit out of fine lace weight yarn. I am having some problems finding the correct size.
Haha - PickleSue, I am just itching to get my hands on some cobweb-weight yarn. (Any advice is welcome...)
Ooh - yeah! Thanks!
The Gossamer Web is owned by Fleegle. It is her book Fleegle Spins Supported that is amazing. I only hope that some day I can spin supported with 1/4 the expertise that Fleegle has. Those yarns are spun by Fleegle. I believe she spins them on a support spindle, not on a wheel.
What I've done in the past is check Ravelry. I click on where you can see other people projects and then in the upper right corner I click on "advanced search". It brings you to the normal search screen and then you can select what weight yarn you are using. Then you can see what needle size other people used and what the finished project may look like. I use this method a lot when I'm doing lace projects.
