I received the most fabulous package on Thursday, completely out of the blue, which cheered me up no end – it’s been a frustrating week at work, so this was a lovely surprise.
A month or so ago, I won a prize from m1k1
, for commenting on one of her posts. It was a surprise prize, in that I didn’t know what it was going to be until it arrived.
And so when I unwrapped this, I was blown away! The most fabulous lace, in a cashmere/silk blend, knitted on 2.5mm sticks!! It is just the softest, lightest, most lovely thing, the photos really don’t do it justice.
I can’t decide if I want to wear it as a lovely light scarf, or use it as a table runner. Wearing it would allow me to feel the most amazing softness of the yarn and to show off the colour, but it would of course scroonch the pattern up and spoil the blocking. Using as a table runner means I can display it in all its glory, but won’t have quite the same pleasure in touching it as much! I guess I’ll do the latter though – I can’t quite bring myself to scroonch it up!
Thank you so much Jen, it was so much more than I ever expected and I love it!! And if you haven’t checked out her blog, A Little Bit Crafty
