Yesterday I bought Mindy Ross’s pattern “Eternal Optimist”. I think it is her newest one, and is for a scarf/shawl made of several different lace patterns, starting with dangling ‘seed pods’ and ending with lace leaves. It can be beaded or not, and looks really really really cool. I am thinking of my silk yarn currently living as Angry Dragon, except the pattern says 600 yds minimum, and I have 400. I’m guessing I have 200 miscellaneous yards of fingering weight yarn in my stash that will work, but it won’t be silk. I think if I add enough wool yarn throughout the pattern it will balance out. Maybe. I’m still in the contemplative stage of this project, but I definitely want to make this pattern with something, someday.
Today I am staying with my indigo yarn. I finished one back section yesterday and started the second. One shoulder seam got done with a three needle bind off; I love seeing progress.
