My yarn is from Lane Borgosesia, I eventually bought it from Pavi yarn.They are quite good and fast. My first choice wasn't this shp. Unfortunately the shop I had bought didn't have the color in stock although THEY SHOW IT ON THEIR WEBIST. I was quite frustrated to have such an unpleasant experience I don't think I will buy anything from them now. They didn't get the money from my card but they just wasted me my time.=.=" And even I was told they don't have that color in stock I still could see this on their webist. I don't think it's good although I know maintain a webite isn't an easy job.
I was quite amazied how thin lace yarn us. Of course I at once tried to cast on BUT I didn't want toruin it for I didn't have a ball winder. Such a thin yarn will denefitely caused a very big trouble. I thought of the importance to have a yarn swift and ball winder. I bought it in the end. I knew if I don't have them I couldn't do anything about the yarn. I thought it might be eaiser to ship to Andy's office and then he could bring it back to me. Such a wonderful plan, wasn't it? anothe BUT. He was so busy to out of his office for the whole week~~~~~~~~~ so I didn't get them til last Friday.
We were both ecxited of them. Andy helped me set them up and even helped me wind the ball. He seemed enjoy it. And he said I was soo brilliant not to promise you to be your yarn swift. It took such a long time to wind the skein(100g) I don't think I wanted to torture himn like this.
I just finished my swatch!! It didn't look the same as Regina's=.= What happened??!! I quite like to knit by Western pics. the good thing is they will note what those symbles means rather than Japanese way. YOU HAVE TO CHECK WHAT THEY MEAN WHEN KNIT JAPANESE PATTERN!!! and the good thing is the project should look very similar when you finish it. I reckon it looked quite the same. So maybe just the differnece from size. mine and Regina's ( I will take a good look afterwards)
I started on Monday night but I redid quite a few times. I think I need some time to get used to yarn lace. I accidentally sliiped a stitch and then I didn't know how far I needed to go to pick it up=.= so upset!!! Now my new toy target is a knitting lamp for light in British house is not so brlight. I don't know how Regina can made 2 swatches and after than some swatch with beads. I thnk I will stick to this one and just knit by no4 needle for I have no power to make another watch now. ^_^
