I forgot to mention it, but I recently joined the Amazing Lace Knitalong.

I should probably add the button to my sidebar, huh.

I’ve been grappling with choosing my teammate and basically waffling between the Forest Path Stole by Faina Letoutchaia from the Summer 2003 issue of Interweave Knits or the Langsjal Jóhönnu from the book, Three Cornered and Long Shawls by Sigridur Halldórsdóttir. After reading today that Margene is considering the Langsjal Jóhönnu, too, my choice was made.

When I first looked through the translation of Three Cornered and Long Shawls, I read that the Langsjal Jóhönnu is the most intricate design in the book. Of course, I decided right then and there that I’d have to knit it. But obligations and other projects intervened so I never cast on. But now I have incentive since Margene and I are planning to keep an eye on each other during the knitting.

And I've got the yarn, too:

What do you think? Icelandic laceweight or J&S cobweb or Zephyr??

Running commentary on my unending quest to knit up my stash.
