First Post from a *scared* new to lace knitter. Hi all and hello to Opal. I have not started yet. I turned my hanks of floss into balls so almost ready to go. Just have to read the pattern thru again and get some things straight in my head. Wool: Knitpicks Gossamer in Sunrise. Very pretty pinks, lilacs and pale blue blend (here's how they describe it).
Content: 100% Merino Wool
Amount: 440 yards/50 gram hank
Gauge: Lace Weight Our filmy hand-dyed Merino lace yarn catches light and reflects back brilliant colors. Lace weight (2/16) - hand wash
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It's the finest wool I will ever have worked with and it's wool, not acrylic...yikes. Hoping the fibres will stay together and not fly off and attack my nose. Thanks for having me :) Claire
