Designer Trading Cards
The two designers this month very talented and the free patterns are just fantastic.
I’m loving all of her whimsical sweet patterns.
I received two hanks of the Unique Chic Studio Airy yarn in Caribbean Blue ($46 value)
These are super large hanks of lace weight yarn. A whole 1000 yards come in each one.
Made of 80% Tussah Silk and 20% merino wool this is a perfect yarn for a lace work shawl. It’s soft and has a nice ply so the pilling should be minimum. I already have an idea of what I will make with it.
Since it’s lace weight, it will probably be awhile before you see the finished project. If you’ve never worked with lace yarn, remember a lace weight shawl is like making a worsted weight blanket. Same yardage, just a different thickness. But lace weight where I live (average 110 degrees everyday) is a much better choice in the summer.
