I owe a big thank you to my One Skein Pal.

I received the most lovely package in the mail from him or her last week containing a much longed for skein of Shaefer Anne.

I've heard such wonderful things about this yarn and always wanted to try it, but I've never seen the beastie in person before.

The colors are perfect - reds going into rusts and blues going into purples. I knit a swatch in a lace pattern and it's going to be great.

I decided on lace rather than socks because this is fairly thin yarn and I had to rip my Trekking sock because, after knitting it on zeros, it was too loose. And I'm not going lower than a zero for socks. The actual shawl pattern is TBD, but it's going to be very nice!
