Ooooooh, Preeeetty!

This is my new love:

It's green. It's sparkly. It's lace. What's not to love?

Despite the close resemblance, this is not another Spring Fever Cami. This is...a secret. But I think it's going to be beautiful. The yarn is (as usual) far prettier in person, and the design is decidedly sexy. But you'll have to wait to see the finished product.

I know what you're thinking: what about Orange? Is this a clandestine affair? Is Orange quietly waiting at home, holding down the fort, wondering what's keeping me away so long? Don't misunderstand: I love Orange. Orange is good, solid, warm wool. No sparkle or lace there. Orange will keep me comfortable in cool weather and will undoubtedly be a faithful companion for years and years and years. But Orange is a fall sweater. And Sparkly is youthful and spring green. Sparkly makes me feel happy and light. I'll go back to Orange. Soon. I will. But for now, Sparkly is just what I need.

Hey yarnhog- What kind of yarn is your latest post? I have some Rowan 4 ply that looks similar in texture and am waiting and waiting to figure out what to do with it.

Also re the 34A (Faith's blog) what really stinks in sweater design is when your waist measurment (after hitting 40) is larger than your chest! Mostly what you hear then is "when are you due?" It's all a matter of visual perspective.

Whatever you are making it sure is pretty! Beautiful yarn! Can you just give me a hint?

hi again yarnhog- thanks for all of your thoughts on "mystery sovled." As I see it, there can never be too many comments.

For just a few moments, "accidentally not felting" really did feel like something professional and it was the first time I wasn't really mad at the postal bag. Thanks for making me laugh- then re: W, making me weep!
