So, here's the finished Voile de la Mer Shetland Triangle (Wrap Style) on the funky old chair (I'd love to reupholster it--anyone know where I can find acid yellow velvet?).
The Tilli Tomas seacell/silk yarn is weightier than Handmaiden's and in some ways, I like it better, but only slightly. It doesn't come in the fabulous range of colors of SeaSilk, which is a significant disadvantage. This was a bit of a ho-hum project. Sarcelle is driving me nuts (at this point, due to the super fine yarn more than the pattern), but this project was toooo easy. And that's saying something coming from me. Generally, I like easy.
Anyway, I've been all lace, lace, lace lately--I need a break! So, I started this La Kim cardigan, Grace, from Rowan #31 with some All Season's Cotton that I've had stashed for a couple of years. I'm liking this color (#164) a lot more than I thought I did--it's a cool, slightly mottled charcoal. I guess I hadn't looked at it for awhile.
Also, the ribbing was knit with straight needles. I've gotten so used to doing everything on circulars, that I find them a bit awkward and uncomfortable, now. I'm knitting Shippo with straight needles, I wonder if that's why it's always a low priority?
ps--There was en eBay auction for 4 skeins of Rowan Cork "Ivy"--the winning bid was $66.06! That's over $16.50/skein, not including shipping! Granted, it's a rare color, but concurrent with that auction, you could buy it online for $10.95--like I did! Maybe you still can.
And I thought I was outta control. Looks like I'm getting out of the Cork market just in time--this is going to end up in tulip mania territory. On the other hand, I may be sitting on a fortune.
