....I indulged in some stash enhancement! But more on that in a bit.
I finally finished the Caryl's Kerchief for my godmother, made from yummy 4-ply Chinese cashmere from Jade Sapphire. Mmm, cashmere! It was $27 for 175 yards, so totally affordable for a little neck scarf like this. I hope she likes it!
And here is a closeup of the beaded edge:
Now onto the stash enhancement! Woolcott was having an overstock sale today, everything on display in the store was 35% off, no exceptions. They moved most of the "good" stuff out of the way though, of course. =P There was a ton of funky novelty yarn and scary eyelash stuff everywhere, but still some nice yarn to be had. I found some Diakeito Diadrey that I've been coveting for months, it is a Japanese yarn, a wool/mohair/nylon blend that changes both colour and texture (smooth alternating with boucle). I think it'd make a really fun multidirectional scarf. Also some rainbow-coloured regia sock yarn, and a skein of Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool to make this scarf from the latest Knitty. Which I think will be my next project. After I finish doing my taxes. Can you tell that I love knitting lacy things? =)
