I’ve never been a lace knitter, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t bought laceweight yarn in some weak moments.
I’ve had this mass of cormo laceweight sitting around for years. I’ve tried knitting it up in various patterns, but none have really caught my fancy. I finally decided that the soft pink wasn’t working for me anymore. I wanted something more vibrant so I scooped up the Koolaid and off I went to the microwave.
I used about six envelopes of Black Cherry Koolaid and it worked out ok. There are still bits that are pink but it’s mostly all a nice yummy red. I’m not going to sweat the quirks, it’s “handmade” afterall.
Now I’ll have to find a lace pattern I like. Unless my Knitpicks order finally arrives and I can start my Ripple sweater. Where is that yarn?!?!
