You know how I was obsessing over this silk yarn? Well I had finally decided to knit the cobweb lace stole. But after I got this far into it:
I decided I couldn't stand it anymore.
I wasn't happy with the way it was knitting up and the thought of using the blunt wooden needles I had for lace patterned on both sides made me want to gouge my eyes out. I ripped out the stole instead and re-cast on for Simurgh. I'm using needles two sizes down from the Cobweb stole and I'm liking the results much more. Although I'm not knitting on it very much - I'm a little obsessed with the socks I'm working on instead. :P
