in which I ask a favor

For the knitting, spinning, dyeing folks out there: I have a favor to ask.

I have a skein of Sundara Silk Lace yarn in this gorgeous, amazing blue- Cobalt Over Mediterranean. (That’s the stuff in the picture, except that photo is of the fingering weight, not the lace.)  I’d like to knit it into a something- blue- type shawl for a wedding- an Icarus, or a Seraphim, I think. Here’s the catch- there are 1,000 laceweight yarns of this stuff… in hank form.

Would anyone out there be willing to wind this into cakes for me- two of them, so it’s manageable- if I sent it out to them? There’s no way I can fit a swift in my room.

(Also- totally open to shawl ideas, something simple but elegant. Thoughts?)

    I love the Seraphim shawl. I think it’s one of the few patterns that look awesome even in a “patterning” (striping, pooling,…) yarn, a lot of lace gets lost when the yarn isn’t a solid color.
    I’d love to help with the winding, except I don’t have a swift either. If you can’t find someone else who has a swift I’ll wind it. How fast do you need it? (Maybe I can justify buying a Swift this way ;-))

    I can do it for you. Both shawls are lovely.

    If you still need someone, lemme know! You get my package yet? I am so scared it is going to get rummaged through and you won’t get it.
