What I did on my holiday part 2

I bought some yarn...

This is Colinette Parisienne

Listen - can you hear it whispering?

Voulez vous tricoter avec moi?

And because I don't have enough projects waiting to be knit:

This is Autunno , a worsted weight merino which knits up like this:

No need to adjust your monitor, there is some very subtle light/dark shading of the yarn. I intend to use it to knit the dropped shoulder sweater from Yarnplay. One of these days.

And finally, the heat seems to have done something to my brain - I am giving serious consideration to knitting lace. Maybe it's because I am finding more "solid" stitch patterns like this:

Hmm...those first yarns do seem to want to be something. But what???

I dig that subtle variation going on in that last yarn.

Ooh, pretty. Do you have plans yet for the fuzzy mohair? I have a cone of similar stuff that I bought only because it was beautiful (which, granted, is a very good reason) and I have no clue what to do with it.

Nice haul. :)

Hah! For the WIN.
Just add "...ce soir" at the end ;)

I'm with Glenna. That line made me laugh right out loud, and now that song is running around in my head!

Nice acquistions!

The lace pattern is awfully pretty, and it looks potentially do-able. Let me know if you try it.

That Lorette is trying to get me to buy and knit with something that looks like sewing thread, and now you too with the lace knitting.
