I SPENT WAY TOO MUCH MONEY ON THE COOLEST YARN EVER AND I'M MAD BECAUSE I WANT MORE OF IT BUT IT'S DISCONTINUED AND REALLY HARD TO TRACK DOWN IN THE COLORS I WANT!

Sorry for the all caps, it's just...really exciting and also maddening!
But look at how cool this shit is! It changes colors in direct sunlight! The yellow is more of a subtle shift, but the others are pretty stunning.

Yeeeeah. I keep thinking he should have a Y name.

Wow! I'd be yelling too. WHY DID THEY DISCONTINUE THAT??? Eeeeeeeee!

Ahem. You going to make yourself some pretty babies with that?

Given the cost of the yarn (approx $13-15 per skein, not including shipping), the amount per skein (100 yards), and the yarn weight (I think it's a #3/DK weight), I probably won't do any full dragons (or other animals) in it, but might do accents (like horn, spine, and wings) with it for a few.

Also maybe a shawl, though idk yet. The shawl I'm thinking of takes approx 600 yards and it's only 100 yards per skein. And I only got 3 skeins of each color, which was more than I should have spent. And the purple and blue are now 100% impossible to find, though I can track down a few more of the pink and yellows.

Ahhh. Yeah, it'd look prettier as an accent. Maybe if you made a shawl with a design on, you could use the shiny for the design or part of the design?

Yeah...there aren't really any shawl patterns for loom knitting that involve colorwork type patterns. Just lace patterns that are basically the whole shawl or would be incredibly annoying to try to do just the lace part in the expensive yarn.
>.>

What I really want to do is get a big umbrella frame and make a lace parasol, but then put the lace part between clear vinyl so it can also be used as an umbrella.

Actually, I've wanted to do that long before I found the magic yarn, but how much cooler would it be to have a beautiful, lace parasol/umbrella that changes color in the sun?
But I need to first get an umbrella frame and then figure out inner and outer circumference as well as radius and somehow magically find/modify a pretty lace pattern for loom knitting that will fit those dimensions. And that's a lot of work.

Awwww. Or ... well, for the parasol project, have you ever tried to learn crochet? I know it's probably harder than your loom knitting, but the shaping for circles is easier. Maybe.

I've attempted crochet twice. I have managed to accidentally turn what was supposed to be a square dishcloth into more of a trapezoidal shape.
It's not for me.

Also, shaping and circles aren't that hard on looms, but I'd have to experiment with getting the right size dimensions (which if I were doing a solid stitch, I actually have a worksheet that does the math for me) and then figuring out how to modify lace stitches to fit those dimensions. Not impossible, just something I'd have to test in much cheaper yarn first (I think Caron is actually pretty close to the same yarn weight).

Wowch. *sympathy*

Ohhh. And then you'd have super bragging rights, if you ever wanted them. (<joke)

I’m just really tired, okay?
I still need to make my own lace parasol. I have an old frame from a paper one I got at a thrift store years ago that was already in rough shape.
I use They/Them pronouns.

Do it, Den! Make the thing!
XD

I have been teh lazy lately. But after I make it through today, I get 2 days off in a row, so hopefully will kick into gear and work on stuff more.

Tam: Am almost ready to begin assembly of Custard! Just need to stitch one arm closed, stitch up the sides of the years, and add eyes. Then it's stuffing and assembling time!
8D

Meant to work on her yesterday, but I was tired and did a lot of animal crossing stuff instead. Did take care of other important housework stuff though.

Do it do it, Den!

Kaderin, W00T! If there's time, could you stick a heart inside her? Just a paper one is fine. No problem if there's not time, it just occurred to me as a possible cute thing.

I hear you. I'm dragging my rear from work (JUST ONE DAY, DARNIT, TAM!), and then Hurricane Flo decided to arrive unexpectedly in the wee smas. BUT... I got the dishes done this morning. :D

Of course I can put a little heart in! Tbh, I think I have a fabric with a heart print that might be the perfect size to one out of.
