The latest Knitter's Magazine arrived today and there are several patterns that have caught my fancy, and one in particular has inspired me to dig some yarn out of my stash that has been languishing for at least 3 years waiting for the right project to come along. I've pulled this yarn out a couple of times trying to find a project that would suit it, but have always been unsuccessful, until now. This yarn, one of the first sets that I bought from Unique Sheep, is going to become the Alita Dress. The pattern calls for lace weight (Schoppel-Wolle Lace Ball 100 (100% Merino)) held double, but I will be using the fingering weight held single. When I bought the yarn I remember being a little disappointed in the color because it just wasn't right for the project that I had bought it for, but when I pulled it out again just a few minutes ago I discovered it was beautiful, it just needed the right project for me to realize that.
