A few weeks ago I got some beautiful Claudia Handpaints silk laceweight yarn (depicted here). I knew I would want to do something special with it.
Today the Knitty Surprise for this issue came out, and there are three patterns. One is this one, Juno Regina.
It has a lovely lace edge and a simple middle, which would be great for when I need to work on something "mindless." The rainbow colors would keep it interesting. This is a perfect project for the yarn. And I have enough yarn. Woot! I love it when a plan comes together (old people will remember the source of that line).
To quickly review, the other projects are a hat and scarf that would be nice first intarsia projects, though not anything I need, and Oblique, a very lovely lacey sorta double breasted cardigan that may be the next cardigan I do for myself. It looks comfy and fun.
