On the same day that I found this orphan Lite Lopi in my stash Mason Dixon Knitting
hosted a KAL for a sweater using the very same yarn. It felt like a sign.
It's for the Stopover
sweater by Mary Jane Mucklestone and I really, really wanted to join but I have too much going on to commit.
I didn't have enough Lopi in my stash for a whole sweater anyway and trying to buy more was not easy since Reynolds doesn't make it anymore. You can tell how old mine is by looking at how much I paid for it.
This is what you pay for it now and they call it Lettlopi.
In a moment of insanity, I went ahead and bought what I thought might be a match in a quantity enough for a vest.
to be exact but I can't start it until I finish at least one of the vests I am already working on-or can I?
I think you and I have the same disease.. I just cast on for a project I really shouldn't have...ReplyDelete
If you need several balls and not in a hurry, you may try to order from here - http://shopicelandic.com/collections/lett-lopi. I am still considering mittens :)ReplyDelete
Oooooh...the color selection is divine. Thanks!Delete
I say go for it. One can never have enough knitting projects going on at any given time!!! That's my philosophy. :-)ReplyDelete
I give you permission! Join and knit with abandon! I love working with that yarn!ReplyDelete
Oh sure you can! What a gorgeous traditional lopiReplyDelete
Devil's advocate here ---- SURE YOU CAN!!!! It looks like a fun knit.ReplyDelete
Oo that's pretty pretty. You know I'm only ever going to enable and endorse your projects, lady!ReplyDelete
