Purchased some ultra fine yarn from Heirloom Knitting to try and do an orenburg sampler in size 0 needles 2mm.

The yarn is imitating the fine goats hair used in these lace shawls it was easy to work but oh so fine like sewing cotton with mohair just trapped on.

    I am writing for the blog (in Russian) on knitting Orenburg lace shawls all over the world. I would like to translate part of your post (with pictures) to Russian and publish it in my blog. Could you please give me your permission to do it? Definetely I will make a link to your webpage in my post.
