Yarn experiments

It's fun to experiment with different types of yarn for a knitted leaf & lace throw. Last week, I bought a some of this yarn: Lana Grossa Ragazza, 100 % merino wool to be knitted with needles size 12 (US 17). It's absolutely wonderful, but.... it's way too expensive for a throw... I made a mini square to calculate the amount of yarn I would need, and it's just too much (sigh!). I'll save these balls to make a super comfy shawl. But that's for next winter, because I'm already in a Spring mood :-)
