There's always Beijing in 2008.


Well, I didn't make it, despite a really strong push in the last few days. This is a massive project, and to those who crossed the finish line, congrats. As for me, I'm really thrilled with the way my shawl is coming out. The striping is more subtle, but more beautiful than I expected. And I'm a little disappointed that I didn't make it onto the podium. But there's always Beijing in 2008.

Oh, thank you! It's Mountain Colors hand-painted yarn, in the Twizzle variety. It's 85% merino and 15% silk. The primary color is "berry" and I lost the tag on the darker color so I don't know the name, but it's a maroon with a rusty tinge that goes nicely with the magenta tone of the berry color. They are located in Corvallis, Montana.

I think the yarn is mostly the merino, and the flecks in it are all silk, so the highlights really shine. It's nice stuff. They recommended needle sizes 4-6, and I used 6. it's 250 yards per 100 grams, so you need more yardage than needed for the Lornas Laces in the pattern.
