Wow–the Sagrantino is lovely!

Thanks! I will look at those!

I’m thinking (read: Obsessively debating with myself) about working up this pattern for my cotton red/white/blue yarn I was fighting with last year. I have 800m of a ‘2’ weight. I’m not sure how it will work up… I really need to stop acquiring yarns without patterns in mind for them!

I’ve used similar yarn to make a shawl and just love the airy patterns. I think some of the fun of stashing yarn is later being challenged to find patterns to fit the yarn…it is part of the creative process to me! Am I helping? :rofl:
