Beautiful!



Pattern: Wisp from knitty
Yarn: Rowan Kidsilk Haze in 595 (maroon)
Needles: US8 circs
Modifications: None

The pattern was relatively easy, the yarn was not. It took me several tries (and some wasted yardage) to get accustomed to this fuzzy thread.

P.S. I dropped a couple of stitches as I neared the end, but my brand new tool saved the day. The doohickey on the end allowed me to pick up one thread, then closed so no other stitches were snagged in the process. Great design!

Very nice! I'm doing mine in Malabrigo lace. It's a bit thicker, so it's pretty easy.
