I...

changed my mind again :)

Yes, you read that right... I wasn't happy with the fabric I got using the Zephyr laceweight yarn. Then I was reading several of the lace knitting related yahoo groups I'm on and someone said that if you use 2 strands of Zephyr laceweight yarn you get fingering weight yarn. So I've been thinking about this... and now I have several options... 2 strands of Ladyslipper (pink), 1 strand of Ladyslipper with 1 strand of Ice Blue (light blue) or 1 strand of Ladyslipper and 1 strand of Dianthus (a fuscia color)... hmmm... and then before we even settle on this... should I wind the 2 strands together into a ball, or just use them pulling them each from their own ball...

decisions decisions... as you may have noticed, I'm not good in dealing with decisions hahahaha

Cheers Eva

I love the Dianthus colorway. It's all I can do not to buy some for Icarus!! I like the idea of the Ladyslipper and Ice Blue together as well. As you can see I'm no help when it comes to colors!

Eva, I'm using two strands of laceweight held together and a US5 needle. I cast on last night and have 10 repeats of rows 5 and 6 done. So far the fabric is quite nice.

I'm using two separate balls of yarn.

use from 2 different balls. if you use 1 ball wound together sometimes they pull at different tensions and then you have problems.
