Jul 3rd, 2009 swaps, yarn p8rn fridays

I told you I was on a yellow streak! I know this yarn is the exact same color family as my previous two knitting projects, but it’s the newest addition to my stash. I figure if I am on a streak, I should roll with it! What’s the harm in a little more yellowy golden yarn? The funny part is, I am so in love…

Today’s yarn is another in my laceweight parade, but at least I have two skeins of this one… the iconic Rowan Kidsilk Haze. I’ve never worked with this yarn, but it seems so ubiquitous that I’m looking forward to it, despite its mixed reviews. I like knitting with laceweight, and I enjoy a variety of tasks that other knitters sometimes find frustrating (like seaming and…
