This is one beautiful yarn., The photo doesn’t do it justice.

Unfortunately, I can’t figure out what to make with it. The skeins are pitifully small (88 yards!) so it would be quite costly to make anything….say, bigger than a mitten. So I started learning a new lace pattern, just to get a feel for it. Sadly, the pattern doesn’t show up too well due to the heathering. Doesn’t stop me from wanting to buy a whole mess of it, though. The colors are just stunning.

In other news…frogged the soaker. The yarn, while wonderful, was just wrong for the pattern. Now I’m trying to decide what to knit at our get-together on Saturday. I’ve got $60 earmarked for new yarn….
