So my mother (aka The Evil Enabler Who Isn't Actually Evil, Really Just An Enabler) bought me two skeins of lace weight 100% cashmere for my birthday. 100% Freakin' Cashmere!!!! Hand Painted!! In Canada!!!!
See how nicely it goes with my really out of character for me (I'm a solids girl, no prints, thanks) girly blouse? Mmmmm. And, the other colours in the cashmere let me bring in blue, green, or gold. You know, for those "my eyes are bleeding with the horror of the colours" days. Mmmmm, wicked colour combinations and cashmere.
What to knit? Well, not lace (I don't like the combination of lace and hand painted yarns - neither shows well when knitted together - so sue me (please don't)). Cool, brackets within brackets. My inner blogologue has comments on its own comments. Something textural, but light. Garter stitch stole? B-o-r-i-n-g. Must swatch. Excessively. But not yet, no. Must first stroke and caress the cashmere-y goodness.
And, for my next post, expect to read my rant about the Leaf Lace shawl. It's upside freakin' down people! How has nobody else noticed this??? Oy.
