Baby's First Yarn Club

In a moment of weakness and self-indulgence, last December I signed up for my first yarn club. I've always been interested in clubs, but I'm so picky about colour and texture that it never seemed worth the risk. After seeing a year's worth of shawls coming from Ysolda's first club, I couldn't resist the temptation and I signed up for 2016. I mean, I have trusted her patterns since I knit most of an Arisaig way back in 2006, so what could go wrong? The first instalment arrived a little over a month ago, so I am banking on this not spoiling anything..

The first club yarn is a beautiful BFL laceweight in a really lovely hunter/emerald green from Triskelion. I'm usually not into these cooler greens, but this project has been matching my outfits all the time, so I feel like that's a good sign.

The pattern I'm doing is a full-on lace and cabled scarf, and while it isn't too tricky, I will admit that cabling with laceweight yarn does require concentration. I screwed up a cable cross early on, but I'm not going to worry about it. After all, where is the fun in a perfect project.... right? I'm hoping I can finish this by the next instalment in May, but I've had a serious case of startitis lately and am feeling a bit knit-scattered. There just aren't enough hours in the day to knit everything I want to!
