Now we know I have lots of yarn in my stash. But, up until about two months ago, I had only 3 skeins of laceweight yarn in my stash. Seriously. Those were gifts too. Well, then ilikecake went and introduced me to the Plucky Knitter's 2-ply cashmere lace yarn. Oh. My. Cashmere. I quickly acquired two skeins of it from cupcakefaerie (I am spoiled by my yarn snobby friends! They have the best stashes!). Another three skeins from Churchmouse Yarns & Tea on the way to sock camp (that was restrained....I really really wanted two more skeins of Pumpkin). And I may have traded for two more skeins. And I really want some Geisha from BMFA now too!
I guess I never should have said that I would never knit with lace. Maybe I just needed to find the right patterns.
One skein of Plucky Knitter 2-ply cashmere, colorway Cupcake!
Just a simple 1 x 1 rib cowl that was a shop sample at Churchmouse. I can't wait for fall to wear this....every...day...!
Oh, and from the weekend baking...French-Style Yogurt Cake with Lemon from this book
(yes! I'm still loving it, though I finished it a week or two ago!). This is heavenly! A perfect summer afternoon cake. Or breakfast cake. Or dessert cake. Or, heck, it is Monday, so I can have two pieces cake. hehe
