Special Delivery!

OH. My. Goodness. Remember my purchase from Heritage Yarns for the Elegantly Simple Triangle Lace KAL? Well...I've never even touched Tencel yarn before. This is the silkiest, most sensual yarn! And the color - such intense fushia, deep purple and medium to cobalt blues. Swoon? Yup. That I will do. The photo cannot do the yarn justice. There's almost 1700 yards of this delicate laceweight yarn. More than enough for the largest version of Jackie E-S's lovely shawl. I suspect there'll be at least one lace scarf made for some lucky someone for Christmas, too! If you haven't seen Margaret's yarns yet, you MUST GO...you won't be sorry! (and turn your speakers up when you go for an audio delight as well...)

Oh, yes, I know. I'll be working on three lace shawls now (after all I don't want to get bored: this one, Catharina, and Diamond Fantasy Shawl, too - and they're ALL laceweight). I am addicted.

"I am addicted."

You certainly are, but it's such a nice addiction.. {g} And the yarn is beautiful - the colors show up much nicer in your photo than on Margaret's site. Does it actually have that little bit of texture that her photos show?

Gorgeous yarn! Wind carefully... I had a bad experience with winding slippery yarn too fast on my ballwinder and having centrifugal force shoot it off the winder and across the room.

The level of cursing is not to be believed when that happens...

I am very impressed by that yarn, and your nails look stunning fondling it too... three shawls at once is pretty impressive too!

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
