Well, I went into a frenzy at Romni Wools and Lettuce Knit earlier this month and here’s the result! My new favourite dyer? Julie Asselin. I bought one hank – “Cherry Pie,” second row on the right – and bitterly regret not having the time to get back to Lettuce Knit to stock up on more of her Merletto lace yarn!
But this blitz yielded enough to keep me busy until we can go back in a few years – here are two or possibly three sweaters for Knoll, too many socks to count, a square shawl with hundreds of nupps. With the wheat-coloured Mirasol Sulka Legato I’m going to reknit my Faroese “Haldarsvik” and use the Merletto for a new version of “Cherries and Fairies” (the purple shawl as seen here).
