The Begonia Swirl and I think it just might be the ticket. Not only is it pretty but it has charts (Scary Charts),it requires concentration, and it's done in lace weight yarn so I will have to spin lace weight yarn to boot! I've enlisted "Polly" (my Kromski Polynesian wheel)
for the task because it can spin perfectly fine singles for lace weight and she's a big wheel that can't easily be moved from the spinning room to in front of the TV. That means I'll have to confine myself to the peace and quiet of the wheel room for several days at a time to get 822 yards of lace weight for the project. Perfect! I got a good start on it last night.
it's pretty tedious work getting the singles very fine so there's lots of stopping and checking
the yarn gauge on this handy little tool. This should keep me distracted for a while although I may need a few more of these type of projects to see me through the next four years. Sigh
