Sunlit Grotto is the name of the color of a beautiful skein of Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace that happened to “fall” into my stash. Yarn has a way of doing that sometimes.

I turned it into a shawlette, using the popular Citron pattern.

Having already made two Citron shawlettes for myself, I decided to donate this one to the silent auction at the school where my kids went from preschool through 8th grade. The auction was in March, and the colors of this shawlette would be perfect for someone to wear on an upcoming chilly Spring evening or on Easter.

I was thrilled to hear that my shawlette went for $80 at the silent auction. A nice contribution to the cause!
