I jinxed myself.
A few weeks ago, I bought enough of the yarn above (silk with some cotton mixed in) for a top. I swatched on the US4s that I had with me and loved the drape. I washed the swatch and searched and scoured for a pattern worthy of such a lovely score.
I never found anything that I liked – and I resigned myself that I’d have to design something myself. Not difficult, but annoying and not what I wanted to do.
This past weekend my parents were in town and since I’ve accumulated a fair amount of “crap” I had to send them home with a bag of stuff so that I could bring the rest on the plane… and the easiest and quickest thing for me to send home in a bag… was my yarn stash minus the mitered blanket in progress. Including the above since I knew that I at the very least wouldn’t have time to work up the schematics for a whole new design.
And then, today, this pattern in the exact perfect gauge becomes available. I love it so much that I’d love to be able to start it immediately. And yet, my yarn is now in Indiana while I remain in NY.
