Literally… on Sunday at least! (I’ve also been working away in my own mythical yarn land too!) If you aren’t from Portland and you haven’t heard of Yarnia, go take a look at their website. You can basically make any sort of custom yarn you want from color, weight, fiber, and yardage. And it’s really affordable… like really really affordable. Like I bought 3600 yards of custom lace weight yarn for about $50.
And what did I buy 3600 yards of lace weight yarn for, you ask?
I’m planning a crazy project! I’m going to knit a dress for a really special wedding I’m going to in August! It’s going to be lace and I’m sewing a dress for underneath the knitted lace. My mom told me I should knit a dress for the wedding after we saw Laurinda Reddig’s crocheted dress at the Yarn Ball. I chose two strands– one wool, one cotton– both in shades of the perfectly bright and happy fuchsia. After stopping at Yarnia, I went to Fabric Depot and found the perfect fabric to match!
I think I’m going to start swatching soon… I think I’m going to have to! What a big and fun project! 🙂
