I fell for this yarn a little while ago – it’s a really compelling combination of black and brown, with a little bit of dark blue here and there. It’s hand-dyed, by Ewe Give Me The Knits. It’s labelled as a fingering, although the yardage (310m/100g) is more sport-like.

These beads are perfect with it – they make me think of rootbeer.

Together with a pattern I’d swatched and charted, it’s quite charming when you look closely at it…

From a distance though, it just doesn’t sing. Really, it’s just a big swatch. I could finish knitting it, but I’m sure that I can find something that will do more justice to the yarn and beads…

The good news is that I’m pleased with the lace pattern for different yarn and bead combination; so it’s not a total loss…
