Those nice people over at Lorna's Laces have a new yarn coming out in fall. I can't tell you what it's called, because it doesn't have a name yet. You can tell them what it's called, though, because they're putting the names suggested by the knitting public up to a vote.
It's a DK-weight silk/alpaca blend, and it's ever so nice on the fingers.
They gave me a bunch to fool about with, and this sheaf of quickie snapshots shows the result of the fooling. The colorway is under wraps until the debut at TNNA in June, so you're looking at it in black-and-white. (This is what blogging would have been like in the silent movie era.)
I'll photograph it properly when I can get it onto a model and into good light–Chicago is back to the usual February-in-May gloom that often passes for spring in these parts.
I call it Sahar.
The pattern will be available after the usual round of tech editing and test knitting.
