I’m up to Row 28 of 32 on the lace pattern and have finally run out of yarn… Grrrr. No, I didn’t do a test square and the pattern clearly says it will take 400metres knitted to test square tension, so it is entirely my own fault. But still most annoying! However the lace section is looking really lovely:
This is the WIP:
However as I clearly need to finish it, I have been forced to search for the yarn and I found the Natali Stewart Yarns website. And jolly lush stuff they have too! Highly recommended you have a look! Not just silk yarn, but fibre, felt and all matter if lovely stuff.
I have found what I think is the correct yarn (unhelpfully, the catalogue number on my skein does not correspond with a similar colour way on their website…), but I think I need SeCY24, which is these two photos (taken from http://natalistewart.co.uk):
And this is my skein before I would it up:
It will be highly annoying to have to buy a whole £22.50 skein to knit 4 rows and cast off! Oh well, I want to finish it! I may see whether some grey lace I have at home would make a nice border, but I’m pretty sure it would be nicer in the same stuff.
