Dork Alert

I feel like a big dork. Anyone who knows me can attest that I have been goofy about the lace weight yarn from Scouts Swag in the colorway Van Gogh. I have been planning to make the Cozy Wrap from Knitty with this yarn.

Well just by chance I ran across the listing in Ravelry for this very pattern and the yarn weight (the pattern at the Knitty site only lists the yarn used to make the pictured finished product and didn't list the weight) listed is WORSTED not LACE. DUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I should have had a V8! Lesson learned... I must research the yarn weight rather than assume. ASS+U+ME

The good news: I have somewhere between 750 and 800 yards of worsted weight yarn left over from Jimmy's Cobblestone sweater that I can use. It will be tight but I will make it work.

The bad news: Now I have to find a project for the 1,000 yards of lace I adore.

Ok so maybe I will give it a whirl with the lace. I have been trying like crazy to find another project to make with the lace but nothing is captivating me as the cozy does.

Thanks ladies for the encouragement!
