I've got a little over 800 yds of lace weight Misti Baby Alpaca (and very pretty it is). The question now is what to do with it? "Lace Shawl" seems like the obvious answer, but I'm not sure I need one. Any other ideas, anyone? In the meantime I guess I'll swatch a little and see if the yarn talks to me.

Note to self: stop and think a little before your next impulse purchase.

In the meantime, I am 3/4 of the way through the edging on the jazzy blanket. Plain garter stitch in black Knit Picks "Stroll".

I ordered twice what it's turning out to need. In my defense, I had initially though I might do a wider border, but once I got going I liked the look of a narrower one.

Blanket looks great!!

Try doing a pattern search in Ravelry for 800 yards of laceweight. You might get some ideas.

the blanket looks phenomenal! And Ihave tons of those impulse purchases - I always buy before I think. Kmkat has a great idea - Ravelry might just turn up the perfect pattern.
