Amazing Lace Intro, (meet the team)

We have joined the "Amazing Lace" it started officially this weekend, and we are here to introduce ourselves to you. Some of you may remember me from a previous post. I was the beautiful Alpaca lace wt, yarn she couldn't wait to start knitting with. You know, the Alpaca with a Twist Fino. She took pictures of me and showed me off to the blogging world and even left me sitting out for a few days before she did anything with me. And then she finally cast on for a very pretty lace sampler scarf. But she is such a fair weather team mate and as soon as she hit a few snags in that lovely, delicate fiber of mine, she became frustrated. The frustration continued to mount with every few yards of knitting, more tangles... she is not very patient in that manner. So, I was frogged and even broken apart and some of my fiberous being was even disposed of. And then, this teammate of mine, stuffed me in a gallon sized storage bag and left me there until this weekend. ( let me tell you, there is not much air in those ziplock bags) . But now I am being worked with again and I can breath, and I am admired for my softness... all is far anyway. I hope it stays that way. I don't want to be put back in that bag for a long period of time ever again.

My "teammate" makes me sound harsh, but really I am not. I just care so much about her that I could not stand to lose my patience with her anymore. So, she was put in a "safe" place until I was ready to devote my undivided attention to her again. And that time has come. We are a team! and we will persevere. I will not give up on her, nor she on me. We will be strong until the very end!

You're so witty!! That looks so nice. I'm glad that you and your teammate have reconciled and the striff between you has been put aside. I can't wait to get my Knit Picks order so I can start the shawl with my teammate.

Oh my gosh, your poor yarn! I'm surprised no one has called the ASPCY (American Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Yarn) yet.
