But, only for a moment. That was when I saw the price tag. This gorgeous yarn is lace, and although it is only 3 oz., it is 498 yards long. Would anyone care to take a guess on what it was selling for? $4.99. My face literally looked like O.O when I noticed the tag. I'd never worked with lace before, but let me tell you, it is absolutely my new favorite texture, and will be so for quite a long time. It's been 24 hours since I bought the yarn, and I still firmly believe this is the best investment I've made in a skein of yarn, ever.
Of course, I wanted to knit a swatch to show you all, instead of just posting a picture of the skein, but I worked a 10x10 rib (about 14" long) on size 2 needles for more than an hour and my results are shown in the pictures below. The yarn varigates much too slowly, and I still had many yards left of the same purpleish-brown color before it changed to red, so I gave up. I think I know what I want to use this yarn for, so when I make headway on knitting that (hopefully sometime in the near future), you will be the first to see pictures of it.
