Thank you for all your lovely comments about the shawl. I wore it out last night, and fished for compliments from everyone I met. Now for the real challenge – a shawl in laceweight. I’m already nervous. But I have plenty of company! If you’re joining the Fir Cone Shawl knitalong, do make sure you are part of the Posh Knitters group, so you can show us your progress (and help me out if I get stuck).
Even if you aren’t joining the knitalong, if you haven’t already joined the Posh Knitters group, please, please do so. I’m giving up Notify List at the end of this month, so if you haven’t transferred over to the group by then, no more updates (even late ones!) for you. And that would be a real shame, because you’d miss out on scrumminess like this:
Oh, this yarn. To. Die. For. It’s a 70% kid mohair, 30% silk laceweight yarn, which knits up into gossamer light shawls with the shimmer of silk at their heart. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a yarn this fluffy! Each skein is 50g, with 450 yards, and costs £8.00.
But now for the bad news: I only have a limited supply of this yarn. 12kg, to be exact. That is 240 skeins. Less 3 for me (if I don’t have a shawl made from this yarn, my life will not be complete). And at the rate you snapped up the yarn on Wednesday’s update, that’s not going to last long. So, we’re going to try to eke it out over the next couple of weeks, but when it’s gone, I don’t know how long it will be before I get the next batch. Snap it up while you can!
(Some of our yarns will always be limited supply, while others – Lucia, Emily, Eva, Sophia – should always be in stock. It all depends on the supplier.)
The preview will be up tomorrow, and the shop update as always on Sunday at 6pm. In other news, the sock and lace club yarns are on their way to members, and I’m just finishing the lace club pattern page today. And all Wednesday’s yarn purchases are on their way too.
Now, I think I’ve earned a large hot chocolate, don’t you?
