Just One More Time

I know I said it was time to stop buying yarn but then I went to Italy on vacation…

Burdablad

where I always try to buy Burda Maglia. It’s always full of things I want to knit and I quickly found something in this one as well.

The more I looked at it the more I had to get the yarn and so I bought 10 balls of Mexico from Grignasco.

I didn’t bring the right needles with me so I didn’t cast on before I was back home. So far the yarn hasn’t disappointed me. It’s a 100% dk-weight mercerized cotton and very elastic. Here’s a close-up of the lace pattern used:

I’ve washed the swatch in the machine and it washes very well without any shrinking.
