Le Ponchette

It's here! It's here! It's here! You see before you 3 skeins of DK hemp yarn in Deep Sea Blue, and the pattern for the Cool Hemp Ponchette. I've been drooling over this pattern for ages, and finally broke down just before my trip and ordered it from Warm Threads. This is my second project for The Amazing Lace, obviously the first is the ever lovely Orangina. Does this mean that I can't cast on for this one until I'm done with her? I'm not sure I have the fortitude for that. I know, I planned on showing pictures of the little striped sweater I finished up for Gwenyth, but the little sunspot is napping, and there is no way I'm waking her up for a photo shoot. If I can get organized today, perhaps I'll have them ready for tomorrow. But be truthful - what's more exciting to look at anyway? A finished object? Or beautiful, untouched, full of potential yarn? Is this what they refer to as "yarn porn"? If so, I'll admit it. Hello, my name is Charity, and I'm addicted to yarn porn. There is nothing better than a bundle, pile, bowl, bag, basket or box of yarn. It is so beautiful to me, it makes my heart flutter. Am I alone in this obsession?
