These skeins are the beginning of a treasured collaboration with my dear friend Sanni-Maaria Puustinen, who is an incredibly talented and gifted artist and woman. I met Sanni when I was staying with friends in Finland and we immediately bonded over our shared passions. We've embarked on a little adventure together, and this yarn is the first step. Actually, it's the second step in a process that began when I was still in Finland, but the timing for this to happen is now.
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.
