We’ve been working very hard, so the blog has been lagging behind. Someone emailed and asked if we did writing questions anymore. We decided to answer 4-5 writing questions – business or the actual writing, doesn’t matter – so ask whatever you want in the comments or through the email form on the website.
Meanwhile, I have a dilemma. I’ve joined a yarn club.
Yes, I know. I will wait until you’re done laughing. I now have a 400 yard skein of Merino 80/Cashmere 20 in California Dreamin’ colorway and equivalent amount of thin silk, which I have wound together into a single skein. Unfortunately, the pattern that came with my yarn is Basketweave Shawl, which looks like a rectangle of knitted cloth. Meh.
I have to do something with this pink/orange variegated yarn and it has to be 400 yards. I’m thinking Reyna, maybe, but the problem is, I’m looking at pictures of people who have made Reyna and it doesn’t appear that it’s actually wearable as a shawl. It’s more of an oversized triangular scarf.
I feel like the expensive yarn deserves a bit fancier treatment. I want to do a stole or a shawl with a bit of lace or something. Or if it is a scarf, I want it long and fancy. Unfortunately, I don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for another skein and this colorway is hard to pair with other colorways.
