Yesterday I did something I shouldn't have done.
I started swatching for Laminaria in my Cherry Blossom Fibers' yarn. And when I saw that my 4.5mm/US7 needles produced the look I was after, I casted on. And I knitted a couple of rows.
I was supposed to wait until I had at least one of the baby items done. Didn't I say so earlier this week?
Well, anyways. I think this might be love. Hope for it to be longlasting.
Now, trying to distract you from my casting on a new project, I present you with this:
Last week, Ulrika over att stickamera/knitmore asked if anyone was interested in exchanging yarns with her as she had a skein of Fyberspates Lacewool in colour Ocean that she found too thin to use herself. The skein weighs 100grams and has 1200m/1,300yards in it. It's Bluefaced Laicester wool with a bit of nylon.
Don't ask me what it'll become. I don't know. I just saw it and fell in love.
In exchange, I sent Ulrika a hank of Knit Picks' Bare Lace Wool and some packages of Kool Aid. She thought it could be fun to do some dyeing in the summer. I thought it'd be fun to do some drooling in the summer. And the exchange was made.
