A fun pattern, and a fun story behind it.
First yarn, then pattern, then four months later a change in yarn as my mind imagines something else.
Knitters beware! The tactile senses of yarn shopping, made me do it...along with 8 other knitters standing nearby, shopping, making encouraging shopping noises, peer pressure for sure... It was a summer day in Warsaw NY, summer knit camp outing... do you see where I'm going? The yarn was yummy, and since I had the yearn for yarn, I also had the yearn for a pattern (booklet) that featured that yarn... hence, Finch's Wings was born. Yet when I opened the booklet, I had other stashed yarn in mind, that I had purchased years before... and now, I'm not totally happy with my choice.
The pattern looks lovely after blocking, however, to really enjoy it, I will have to crochet a little something around the neckline. It's a bit too wide, and tends to slip off my shoulders. And I used up all of the yarn so it will be trimmed with a
contrasting complimenting color.
A note about the yarn:
Lace / 2 ply
71% Wool, 29% Nylon
656 yards / 100 grams

My expectations of what the colorway would look like surprised me, and not in a good way, but it is what it is, and I think I will learn to like it. Just not what I expected.
