New Noro Yarn

I found a new Noro yarn, King, that is a fingering weight silk, mohair, wool and acrylic. It has a sturdy hand, and will likely block really well as a lacey mini-shawl (kerchief). I have cast it on from the center neck with three stitches and I am knitting it with four increases every right side row. I have just started a simple fan lace pattern mixed with stocking stitch. With only one ball, it will be a quick, small project. I have been working on the lightning shawl too, so you will see both done shortly.
The next big project is a mohair cape ( think Red Riding Hood, only in a wine colour!)... Yarn should be here in a week or so. Can't wait!
