More instant gratification knitting. This yarn came in a grab bag from Value Village and I had to use it straight away.

The Vital Statistics
Pattern: Clemence by Katya Frankel, available free through Ravelry.
Size: smaller size.
Yarn: Noro Transitions in colourway 21, 55 per cent wool, 10 per cent silk, 7 per cent alpaca, 7 per cent angora, 7 per cent cashmere; almost one skein.
Needles: 7mm circular needle.
Start to finish: 1 to 2 June 2010.
Stash/recycle content: 100 per cent.
Comments: As I was using a heavier weight yarn than the pattern calls for, I cast on only 72 stitches for this then just followed the chart.
Verdict: Self-striping yarns - there have been problems before but I'm really happy with how the lace pattern breaks the striping up on this item. And what strange yarn this is, so many different fibres, a slightly thick-thin ply with bits of stuff in it. Very Noro but I love it.
