Laceweight Friday

This is the place from which I purchased this gently variegated loveliness....

SO PRETTY. The colour variegations are really slow and subtle, so I think it'll work really well for a lace project. It's much finer than I usually use, so I'll have to think long and hard about pattern and needle size. But - pretty!

In the meantime, I'll just continue to take it out and fondle it every now and then. It's very soft. Mmm.... soft.....

Well, short post from me today - off to work. Short day - I'm having lunch with E and her son N.

Good thing for the day: It's Friday!!!!
Bad thing for the day: Ummm...... none yet? I don't want to say that too loud in case the Depression Monster hears!

Happy Friday (though it is still Thursday for me!) I just wanted to let you know that I have been wearing the purple shawl you sent me ALL SUMMER LONG (it's heavily air conditioned here). So thank you much-ly, and have a great weekend!

Pretty pretty yarn. I love yarn with slow and subtle colour changes - and those colours are gorgeous.

Shhhh. Pretty yarn! Sunnyvale is right down the road from me (meaning, in typical California terms, somewhere within 100 miles, give or take a few).

Oh it's gorgeous. I have more laceweight than I can shake a stick at, but think I need some of that!

Gorgeous yarn - and purrfect for a lace project. I am convinced you must be my secret pal - love your cats! Is one a Russian blue? Am I warm???

Omg that is gorgeous. I needs it. I needs it. Absolutely love the colors and I swear I can see how soft it is.... *whimper* it'd make such a beautiful huge scarf or shawl....
