I am in a bit of a quandry at the moment. I want to knit a lace stole. I want a lace stole to go with my brown silk dress I intend to wear to the only wedding we have this year (30th September). However, since I found out about Mystery Stole 3, I really want to knit THIS stole (even though I have no idea what it looks like, it sounds fun).
I've followed lace patterns for socks, and read charts, but I've never knit with laceweight yarn. In fact there are only 4 skeins in my stash - 2 Knitpicks from a SP and 2 lilac skeins from Posh Yarns. Neither of these add up to enough, so I have asked Natalie over at the Yarn Yard to custom dye me some organic laceweight merino in a light brown that will go with my dress and the left over beads I have from Odessa.
I'm worried I won't be able to do it and then I'll be really disappointed.
Do you think I should start with something smaller - like Branching Out from Knitty?
I think I need to practice some lace before I start... maybe I'll do some swatches on the trip down south this weekend. Unfortunately I think they'll have to be in leftover sock yarn as that's all I have with me. Have a lovely weekend and I'll be back on Sunday with a picture of my home-made swift!
