Serrano is coming along nicely.
I’ve done a bit more since the picture was taken, but here we have three completed repeats of the lace pattern, or six tiers of eyelets. In the various photos that I’ve seen, it seems that most people start decreasing for the neckline after nine tiers. I should be there next weekend. I’m really surprised at how quickly this is going, given that it uses sock yarn.
I’m also surprised at how little yarn this is using. I just joined my second ball, so we’re looking at less than five ounces, or approximately 500 yards so far. That’s doesn’t seem like very much at all to me.
I also have what can only be called a preposterous amount of this yarn. It hurts my brain to think of it in terms of yards, so let me just admit that it’s about a pound and a half. Good thing I like the color. Where did I get it, you ask? I bought it in two or three separate mill end batches from my eBay CTH pusher. It must be Loden, if it’s consistent between batches, but I can’t be sure because I’ve never seen official CTH in Loden.
WHY did I buy a pound and a half of this, you ask? Because I’m a packrat, I’m obsessed with yarn, and it was on sale. That’s why.
