Long-overdue?? No, it's not that bad. Actually, L is for Lorna's Laces! I love this yarn. I started with the shepherd worsted and then became obsessed with the sock yarn and have just moved up a notch to the Lion & Lamb!
Here's Elizabeth Zimmermann's Baby Surprise sweater made with LL Shepherd Worsted. I think this is the perfect project for that yarn. The yarn is so soft and superwash, so it's good for babies. Also, the variegations work wonderfully because the sweater is knit as a sort of wonky rectangle. The colors in the yarn never get a chance to pool in some funny way. It just has these gorgeous variations.
