So how did it go?

I have started knitting my green and black Dreambird shawl. Knitting with
a hand-spun single thread yarn is very different to a commercially spun yarn.
It changes in thickness and the colour variations are much more random
and interesting.

The feeling of the shawl is also very different, it's much more airy and light.
The yarn doesn't fill as much as the merino/silk in my blue Dreambird so
the feathers come out thinner.

See how amazing the feathers look! No, they are not feathers, they are leaves.
I'm going to re-name this shawl 'Dream forest'!

You can see the variation of the yarn in these close-ups.
