Whole lotta nuppin going on
Sometimes an opportunity comes by that is too good to pass up.
During the holidays, I had a very brief but invigorating meeting with my wholesale supplier. I was given the opportunity to send some samples of my yarn for her to put on their stall for the Sock Summit next weekend. I didn't hesitate in agreeing, I mean, who wouldn't? Ingrid also mentioned that if she had time, she wanted to knit some samples.
Well, that was all the encouragement I needed. I pondered a few days over what I might like to make in a hurry - and the Aeolian Shouldrette sprung to mind. I knitted it in my silken thread - it was born to shine - in the Impossiblue colour. I'm not positive the vendors are allowed to sell lace yarn at at the Summit (on account of it being a Sock Summit), but here's hoping!
Anyhow the project.
Aeolian Shouldrette From Summer Knitty 09
Yarn: Knitabulous Silken Thread
Modifications: I didn't do any beads.
Comments: Another lace project that just flew through my fingers. I will be honest and say if I were to tackle another project that involved purling 9 together again, I'd probably use a yarn with some elasticity. It wasn't difficult, but I think the surface of the silk nupps is a little smoother and elongated than a wool yarn might be.
Next up, Aestlight!
