A quick impromptu post for you! This afternoon I decided to get out my squirrel cage swift and wind some skeins into balls ready to knit. I wound four skeins of my new Cascade Ultra Prima plus this beautiful skein of hand dyed lace 62/38 bamboo/cotton that I purchased in September 2012 from A Chronic Yarnoholic’s Ebay shop. This was way before I decided to start knitting with lace weight yarn. The colours just captivated me so I had to have it!
These are the gorgeous colours that appeared on my swift when I unravelled the skein.
The colours remind me of autumn leaves.
A quick look at the growing ball of lace…
I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to wind this ball and contemplate a project. It’s just stunning!
The finished wound ball. Ta da!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And a closer look at those autumn shades…
The pattern I have found is called Leaf Lace Scarf and it’s a free knitting pattern on Ravelry. The best part is the pattern provides written as well as charted instructions. I still haven’t been converted to charted instructions! Don’t you think this yarn will look great considering it’s the colour of autumn leaves?
Hope you had a great long Australia Day weekend. I certainly did! I’ve nearly finished my first lace scarf which I’ll show you soon.
Until next time…
