Thanks for all the nice comments from the last post.

The color I'm using is "cassis". The needles are Lantern Moon US5 12" ebony straights. I bought 4 ounces (1260yds) of it and so far, I used up about 300 yards.

Those of you who expressed interest in making one, you might find it quite monotonous after a few repeats, but don't let that discourage you! The pattern is simple but it's still very pretty and worth the effort. Good luck!

Speaking of Zephyr, I bought more on a recent trip to Philly. I got it from Rosie's Yarn Cellar on Locust Street. I might use this for the Orenburg Lace Triangle that I've been thinking about. I've mentioned this pattern before on previous posts, it's from the Summer 2000 issue of Interweave Knits.

I have so many projects in mind. I was at Purl the other day and bought a bunch of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in "cranberry". I might use this for a cable sweater. I'm still thinking about it, so I'll talk more about it later.
