Yarn Lust: JulieSpins Vera Lace


Sorry for the silence last week - Lumberjack and I went on an impromptu Portland vacation before he started his new job!

I've been working on getting some recent stash photographed and put into Ravelry, and this is my favorite of my new additions.  My friend got me an Etsy gift certificate for my birthday a few months ago, and it's been burning a hole in my pocket ever since!  So a few weeks ago I was browsing JulieSpins and saw the most beautiful handpainted laceweight - I think it's a very similar base to Madelinetosh Prairie, which is well-documented as my favorite laceweight ever - and a few clicks later, it was on its way to me.

And then it showed up, and I ripped the package open, and bwrhherhgkjh.  It's pretty.  It's on a base called Vera Lace, and the colorway is Tempest.  It has just the right combination of magenta and eggplant and ocean blue, mixed with some neutral cream and fawn.  I'm thinking about designing a shawl for it, even though right now all I want to do is rub it all over my face.
