I was interested today to discover that I seem to be in a period of extremes. What made me think this is that I first favorited this excellent neckerchief/shawlette pattern, Outlaw by Celeste Young. I love the look of the pattern but really love that it's done in worsted weight rather than the usual sockweight for this kind of item.
Then yesterday I discovered the beautiful Shearwater pattern by Megan Marshall. This one is a cowl in laceweight. I slapped myself on the head and said, "Why didn't I think of that!" Such a great idea, it's gorgeous, and its done in laceweight instead of the usual worsted.
Thank heavens for these creative designers.
