I know. I just finished saying that I was into slip stitch patterns and yet, I joined a knit-along for a lace stole. Yeah - that one. The Mystery Stole that everyone and their brother seems to have joined. It's Yarn Harlot's fault. (Actually, that's where I first saw the Kauni sweater too. So clearly I am under a Harlot spell.)
So, Yarn Harlot was talking about the stages of succumbing to the temptation that is the Mystery Stole.
Everyone is doing it. (Sometimes this works on me.)
It could be a present for someone else - early start on the fall present-ing.
It's one clue per week, so it is a pleasant break from other things you may be working on.
You have the yarn. I checked, it was true for me too. In fact, when I bought the Noro I also picked up circular fours, and I have been trying to figure out what to use the Claudia Hand Painted Silk Lace for. It was like Fate.
