Craftvent 2016 - Day 21

The drawer contained Color 12 today.  It is Manos Del Uruguay Fino in Amethyst Earring.  It is a single ply.  I really don't like working with single ply yarns - they are underspun and weak.  They already had one single ply in the collection, Color 10, which I did use, but I really didn't want to be binding off with and placing beads with a tiny steel crochet hook on a single ply.  I also did not want to be playing yarn chicken.  So I substituted some Zen Yarn Garden Serenity 20 in Moon Purple.
This allowed me to finish the wrong side row, where I joined the Serenity 20 to Color 11, work another repeat of the lattice pattern, as called for, and the picot bind-off.
