Well… I had really good intentions to use up that $2 rummage sale ball of lace weight wool for my first evah lace project. You know – the one I told you about here.
But a quick little stroll into my local yarn store – Wolseley Wool – and I was singing a new tune (and spending some more $$).
I swear I just went in for some size 3 circular needles for the project.
But then I made the mistake of looking at the lace weight yarns they had in stock. I just wanted to look. See what options were out there. You know… maybe for my next project. (Yeah, right.)
OMG. They are all so pretty.
And I told myself… why… WHY… would I spend all that time on a project and not have it in a colour/feel/texture that I would love.
Am I right?
Please tell me I’m right?
Lie to me if you have to?
I’m excited to start my project with this! It’s from a Canadian independent called indigodragonfly. Their variegated yarn is gorgeous!! And I love supporting Canadian made.
This is a Merino Single Lace. I just can’t wait to see how it knits up!
Oh. And, I also have another confession to make. I decided to change the pattern as well. I’m super excited about making a shawl but I think this one I’m trying now is a bit more realistic. Instead of casting on 481 to start, I’m down to a more realistic 153.
Wish me luck!
PS – Do you have a favourite yarn? What about favourite knitting needles? I’m loving these HiyaHiya Sharps right now!
