Except that I'm using a delicious fingering-weight merino wool. It turns out I really enjoy lace knitting. Who would have guessed? This just may be the summer of shawls and stoles. I do gravitate toward lighter wool in warm weather. This is going to be so much fun. Challenging, but I'm up for it! This lovely yarn was a gift from my Mom, and I have 840 yds of it. Plenty for this. A lace stole with traditional Shetland lace motifs and construction.
