For I own yarn to make this in blue and could do the pattern with little or no effort. Really, it's just a bunch of stocking stitch and some YOs, right?
I did not even try. I bought it at Marshall's today. It was huge and drapey and perfect and deep red. I could not leave without it.
After my few lace starts this summer, I've come to the realization that this might just be the way to go. Worth the $20. And the guilt.
