I really love making lace like patterns that are spring and summer friendly, and in my experience the only easily accessible cotton that I could find was Lily Sugar and Cream, which is always available at Michaels and Joann.

Worsted Weight yarn is amazing for a great number of projects, but I don’t think Spring and Summer projects fall under that category.
