Not really. Not even in my dreams*. But that's the song that is running through my head just now. I cast on for a new project.
I'm using yarn I bought last April at Stitches South, Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Lace in Moody Blues colorway. 996 yards of superwash 100% merino. Feels great so far.
I'm using the free pattern that came with the yarn, Lattice Lace Stole designed by Debbie O'Neill. If her name seems familiar, it may be that you've just read the designer profile in the current issue of Knitscene. She has several new patterns in that issue.
This stole is knit in two halves and grafted together. Right now, at the very beginning, I cannot see why you couldn't wait and graft just the other end/edging instead of grafting two halves. Perhaps this will become clear when I get into the body. Or perhaps I can change it. In the photo on Debbie's blog it seems there is a clear line in the center when it is grafted and I'd prefer not to have that if possible.
But that is way in the future. Right now I'm just On the Threshold of a Dream.
*in my dreams I'm the Textile Conservator at the Winterthur Museum.
