We've tried to show some of the wee speckled bits so you know what's hidden within the twists. This yarn base is truly amazing, and is, therefore, one of my favorites. It has both strength and softness from the gorgeous blending of Merino and silk, and takes color with grace and luminosity. I can almost smell the flowers and grass in the wind!
I want to introduce everyone I meet to the versatility of lace. You don't have to knit lace to use laceweight yarn. Double it up to make fingering weight, or quadruple it to make DK. If you have a swift and ball winder, it's as easy as making the first cake single, then take the inside and outside ends and re-cake once or twice. Ta-da! You can also run a strand of lace with any other weight to make it more interesting and unique.
