On the Needles: Flourish
The pattern is called Flourish and I'm loving knitting it so far, the charts are easy to read and it's always fun watching lace patterns emerge. The pattern is available on both Ravelry and Etsy. The pattern calls for worsted weight yarn and I'm using two skeins of Berroco Weekend that I recently bought using a gift card from Webs. I love the color of the yarn (Grape), but working with it isn't 100% awesome - it has very little if any stretch and sort of reminds me of a thinner, softer version of Fantasy Naturale. Oh, and for those who aren't familiar with lace knitting, the white thread in my shawl is a lifeline, basically it's a spot in my knitting that I can rip back to if I make a horrible unfixable mistake :)
So what are you guys knitting/crafting?
