Life is short

Too short for silly memes or knitting with ugly yarn. If you read my previous now deleted post, you will understand about the meme.

As for the yarn, I will spare you the pictures of the ugly, sort-of-spun silk I was trying to coerce into a scarf. I can make the scarf, but do I really want to, with all the beautiful things I still have around? For example, how about a spider-web shawl from Victorian Lace Today:

The yarn is Just our Yarn Almaza, a pure Tencel lace-weight yarn dyed in reds and pinks. I found it at MD Sheep & Wool and I am madly in love with it. It simply glows in my hands, and feels like heaven. The pictures don't do justice to the colors or the drape.
