On the Needles: Fit to be Tied


I'm knitting up Fit to be Tied by Kristi Schueler so that I can test out Cascade Yarn's Ultra Pima.  OMG - I am LOVING this yarn.  I can't wait to finish, block, and write my review.  So far, knitting with it is a dream - soft and silky with amazing sheen and drape.  I can't wait to see what a little blocking will do for it.

Fit to be Tied is a quick neckerchief lace project.  It's an easily memorized 4 row repeat pattern that is GREAT for knitting while listening to an audiobook or watching tv.  I wanted this a little larger than the original pattern - so I substituted DK wt yarn for fingering wt.

This is the 3rd hank of Cascade Yarns that I have in a purple-ish color.  I'm totally crushin' on the lilac for Easter and Spring wear!  This shawlette should turn out nice and lightweight (since it's cotton) and will look great for spring!  Stay tuned for my completed review of Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima when I'm done blocking this beauty!
