yarrrrn and lace-preview

I bought yarn … well, that’s nothing new, but I bought the most beautiful sock-yarn I’ve ever seen! The photo doesn’t do it justice at all. One skein is blood red and the other is a rich deep purple.

I promised myself not to buy another skein of yarn before these two are knit into socks. We’ll see whether I can manage that. Honestly, I doubt it.

Last time I promised project pictures. There’s nothing ready at the moment, but I have a Hanami stole in the making (and some socks, naturally). So here’s a work in progress picture of my next stole.

Unfortunately this picture really sucks. I’m really not good at this. The finished stole will be photographed by a professional again 🙂
The yarn is great, you can actually see the pattern without blocking. It’s a nice change for a lace knitter when your project does not look like noodles during the process of knitting.
So much for now, next time there’ll be an update on my new socks.

    i bought yarn too. i noticed that there is a craze going on at the moment about hand-painted sock yarn. i nearly fell for a volently coloured piece of zauberball. but it’s going to take more than pretty fibres to lure me into knitting socks again! ha!

      I have a green Zauberball. But I’ll knit a lace scarf out of it. That was my excuse to buy it anyway 🙂
