Whenever we receive a shipment of a new item, I get a serious case of cast-on-itis. A couple of weeks ago it was the Tofutsies … I had to get some going to see what it is like. (It is nice! A soft cottony silky feel, very cushy.) Creating samples for the store provides a convenient excuse.

Today we received a package of Fiddlesticks Lace Sensation accompanied by a nice intermediate lace pattern. Lace Sensation is 100% silk in a slightly heavier lace weight. The best thing is, a single 50 gram ball (240m) is all it takes to make one of the “Lacy Botanical” scarves. The price of a ball is $10.00, so at that price they will make great gifts …

Naturally I’m itching to give it a try, see how this yarn knits up and also try an intermediate lace pattern that’s a little more challenging than what I’ve done so far. The hardest thing will be to decide on a colour …
