My prize from the Amazing Lace Knitalong arrived today. Here it is -- from Kaleidoscope Yarns. There's a skein of Skacel Merino Lace yarn, some Clover bamboo needles, the pattern from Fiber Trends for Cocoon Lace Scarf or Wrap, and some Peach-Ginger tea. A lovely end to a very fun Summer of Lace.
Many thanks to Kaleidoscope Yarns and to Rachel and Theresa for running Amazing Lace!
Speaking of bamboo needles, I've changed to 'em on the Central Park Hoodie. I'd been using Bryspun circulars, and trying hard to like them. But the yarn (Cascade Sierra Quatro, 80% Cotton, 20% wool) sticks to the plastic. The points are nice, and theoretically there's no join, but now that I've switched to a bamboo needle, I'm knitting faster and enjoying it more.
