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.


  1. Congratulations on your prize! I have that pattern but haven't tried it yet. Please let me know if you like it.

    I hope your CPH is going well. I'm thinking about ripping out mine and starting over...have a good day!

  2. Dear Pam,
    Thanks for the comment on our blog. I have a feeling that you are correct:it is our arms that differ! I already added 2" to the length of the sleeves on my Ballerina, because that is the extra length I needed for Mermaid. When I got it done it looked ridiculous. Blocking really helped and I CAN wear it, but like said it is skimpy. Take care and ahppy knitting!
