This is a post to sing the praises of two newly found bits of happiness...

For those of you who saw my post the other day about lace, you know i'm dying to do some sort of delicious lacy shawl or stole but i'm afraid i wouldn't wear one. (I must say y'all have sold me on that one and i will be doing something for myself soon!) However, in the meantime i have decided to make something lacy and pretty for my aunt's Christmas pressie.

I'm going to make this gorgeous scaf (http://www.heartstringsfiberarts.com/a64.shtm) out of the luscious Handmaiden Lace Silk (http://www.colorsongyarns.com/yarns/hand_maiden/index.htm). This stuff is AMAZING! It's so beautiful!! I was giddy when i opened the box! If you're looking for a nice handpainted silk, this stuff is yummy!

Also, i'd like to sing the praises of ColorSongYarn.com (http://www.colorsongyarns.com/index.htm), from which i purchased this lovely find! Since i've never knit with silk before i had a lot of questions, every one of which was answered by the lovely Nancy (of Bob and Nancy who run the company). She took the time out to respond to my questions and even add her own opinions about which yarn would work best when i showed her the project i was thinking of doing. She was so kind and helpful! Thank you, Nancy! Oh, and for those of you who were interested in the elusive SeaSilk, they just got a big order in this week!

I'm off to go gaze lovingly at my Lace Silk... Mmmmmmm!!!! :inlove: :heart: :inlove: :heart: :inlove:
