I confess it ...
I broke down and bought the Autumn Lace pattern. And I've only been saved from another bout of what the Yarn Harlot calls "startitis" (a disease that causes a crafter to start new projects despite already having lots of half-completed ones needing finishing) because all my 2mm needles and interchangeable tips are otherwise occupied and while I have yarns of the correct weight in stash I don't have enough of any of them ... this sucker requires 1200 metres of lace weight and the largest quantity I have in a single colourway is 914 metres. Plus none of the stuff I have is a long colourchange dyejob and I think that colouring is an important part of the look of the thing.

And with the city currently in whiteout conditions and a -33C windchill with more of the same forecast for the entire weekend I don't think there's any danger of me sneaking out to a yarn store in the next couple of days. Safe from online lace shopping for the moment too ... my Paypal account is currently in single digit and the money transfer-in-progress won't likely show up until the middle of next week (yes, I know overage can go onto my credit card but I have a personal rule that I will only use cash-that-is-present for Paypal purchases and I don't want to piss myself off by breaking it)

Harsh weather indeed for you!

"startitis" hahaha...well, I can see that being a real problem with such seductive patterns around.

Seductive indeed ... and I only show you lot a tiny fraction of that which I covet making.

Weather and funds in transfer limbo haven't stopped me contemplating Schoppel Lace Balls though (they have the necessary long gradual colour changes) ... especially this colourway and this one. :-)
