I scored the last skein of alpaca silk laceweight this morning! I had been thinking about it all night and decided I would get it if it was still there in the morning. Why was I thinking of it all night? Because my infant son decided to be awake for a few hours during what I would normally call 'sleeping hours'. Compound this with the fact that my husband and I stayed up late to watch Syriana. I mean really, there should be a warning on DVDs for women like 'George Clooney gets his fingernails pulled out in this one girls!' In my 20's I would have relished a gritty political drama but now I'm a bit soft. So to take my mind off that scene while I wandered around jiggling a small child, I thought about what I would do with the yarn. I'm thinking the Pewter Lace Shawl from Interweave Spring 2003. (Now don't everyone run for their magazine stash! It's here.) Although I may opt for a more openwork pattern like this.
