A Very Special Arrival

We've gotten a small, exclusive order from Handmaiden Fine Yarn. Lino, which is 65% silk and 35% linen. Laceweight, and 870 yards per skein. ($40 per skein).

What should you do with this special yarn?

Jen is going to work the Holey Square Shawl.

I looked at the Ravelry Pattern Ideas page for this yarn (it shows different projects that people have done using Lino) and found a few that look good. Camino Bubbles is completely intriguing. Summit from Knitty would be an awesome choice, too (thanks for the suggestion, Lindsey!).

Are you interested in seeing more Handmaiden Yarns? Let me know if there's anything you're interested in having us order.

Yummy! I have some of their Casbah Sock yarn and love it for baby sweaters, shawls, hats...
