I finally finished the wrap pattern "Aethercopter" from O-Wool, using O-Wool's Balance yarn. I'm pretty proud of this one! I had to frog (wrip it apart) 3 times! It was my first attempt at something lace-like. And yes, now that I've "got" it, I'd make another, I like it that much!
The Balance yarn is amazing! It's a 50-50 blend of organic wool and organic cotton, and US made! Being a 50-50 blend makes it a great yarn for our climate - you know the cold, wet & damp Spring & Fall. It's a DK/light worsted weight, super soft, available in gorgeous colors and machine washable. Each skein is 130 yards and retails for about $10. I'm looking forward to ordering in more of the colors of this amazing yarn. So if you don't see it a color that you just can't do with out, ask to see the color card, I can special order a different color for you.
I will admit, one of the biggest perks of owning a LYS is making all the samples and using all the great yarns available. It also forces me to try new things, like this pattern. I don't know if I would have attempted it if I hadn't needed and great sample piece! This finished product is not for sale! However, if you want to make your own, I do carry the pattern, it's $5.99 or free with the purchase of the recomended Balance Yarn.
