Terasen can wait.

I can't believe I forgot to post about this, but contest winner Kris has a draw of her own going on right now. Check it out. Tell her you came from HSBoots.

Remember when I said yesterday that I have already spent the $100 G00gle is going to pay me at the end of February?

Did you wonder what I spent it on?

Hints:
1-I've been wanting it for over a year.

2-It will be my meisterwerk.

3-It is coming from here.


Oh yes, oh yes. I finally bought it.

I must say: lace is WAAAAY cheaper to knit than Fair Isle. This sucker is going to be about $240 by the time I have paid for the extra yarn (it needs to be a bit longer to be useable) and the exchange from pounds sterling. Hopefully Postes Canada Post doesn't sock me for duty - sometimes they are merciful (and sometimes they're not).

But money isn't everything, and this will be a really beautiful piece. What better way to spend some settlement money?

That's a remote spot, even for someone in the right continent. But it will be lovely when it is done.

Yes, Alice Starmore's "Rheingold Wrap". I hadn't fully saved up for it, but I checked the website one day and half her stuff was sold out...they only had the one colourway left of this shawl, so it was now or never.
