I can't lie.....I am smitten with linen laceweight yarn.
Especially Claudia Handpaint Linen Lace Yarn. It has amazing body and knits up beautifully with an open lacework pattern, like Carly. Each hank has 540 yards of handpainted linen, available in over 140 colorways......the choices or inspirations are endless. I chose the colorway Indian Turquoise for my Carly Lace Wrap project.
The linen lace will require little to no blocking and gets softer and more supple with use.
Wrapping up the details: The Carly Lace Wrap is knit with a US# 6 or 4.0 mm needle and I will probably use approx 1.5 hanks.
Its knitting up quickly......BONUS......I will post the finished project soon.
