Metamorphosis, Part 1, Part 3

I had this beautiful, well ok, lengthy, post written up to go with today's picture of Metamorphosis.

And then, I uploaded the wrong picture for Part 3 and lost the entire thing! (You did want to see the cardigan version this time, right? Not a rerun of the pullover from yesterday!)

This time you are looking at Knit Picks Shadow in Cattail held double and worked on a size 4(US) needle.....

Speaking of size 4 needles, did you see these? Done drooling yet? Ok, then back to my post...

Yep, that is a lace yarn. As it turns out, Shadow has the same weight and exactly twice the yardage of a similar sock yarn. Metamorphosis calls for a sock yarn, so it was easy, peasy, math.

There are many ways to work with double the yarn...You could wind and use two hanks at once, or wind two and then wind the two together, or go the expedient route like I did and wind one ball and work from both the inside and the outside at the same time. Hopefully I will be careful enough not to turn those last few yards into a knotted mess!
