When I was in Copenhagen a couple years ago, I bought some lovely Handmaiden Casbah, actually a sock yarn made of merino, cashmere, and nylon. I purchased it at Sommerfluglen. It travelled (of course!) from Canada where it was made, to Denmark, to the US. It was supposed to be a scarf of knitted broomstick lace, which I found too fiddly. I also don't wear scarves that much. So, I found the Reyna shawl.
I may have expounded on this in the past, but I do believe that sometimes yarn must "steep" in the stash before it tells you what it wants to be. (Maybe this belief is a result of buying yarn without a project in mind.)
I often spend time searching on Ravelry for the right pattern for purchased yarn, and it is not unheard of for me to try yarn with a pattern and reject the pattern. Reyna won and you can see why!
