Welcome Wendy Readers!Wendy graciously posted my question looking for suggestions for the "perfect" pattern for my beloved lace yarn. She suggested I post a photo since there are so few of them available online for this particular yarn. Here's what I've got. The colors are almost right, although the real yarn isn't quite so bright in real life--more plums and mustards than berries, if that makes sense. So what say you? What should I do with this 100% merino lace-weight yarn that is 2400 yards in one solid ball? I love it and want to love the finished project just as much.
Thanks to the folks who have already commented without even seeing the photo! I'm going to take a look at the patterns recommended in the previous post's comments.
In answer to one commenter's question: yes, this yarn is the yarn affiliated with Galina Alexandrovna Khmeleva's name. I wish the site had more photos of things...I saw all of the beautiful things at their booth at Stitches, but it has been too long since I saw them, and I don't remember if their examples used the variegated yarn like the one I bought.
I'm anxious to read what you experienced lace knitters recommend--thanks in advance!
