I'm sooo tempted by a full bag, on sale at $19.99 instead of $90 (http://shop.littleknits.com/catalogsearch/result/index/?dir=asc&limit=36&lk_product_type=196&manufacturer=170&order=manufacturer&q=queensland+leche&yarn_fiber_content=200&yarn_weight=17)! Can't make up my mind between Grape, Denim, Suede Green or Charcoal, would make a lovely simple jumper/sweater.

Anyone used this yarn before?

I purchased some queensland tweed recently - I really like it a lot. I wonder what quantity a bag is? I would have a hard time deciding between the colors also.

They tell what's in the bag, how many balls, you can get the info on the balls. I'm not looking, I'm not looking, I'm not looking. I have to go back to ignoring this thread.

I missed that, 10 skeins per bag! I've already spent my budget - what can I sell? :roflhard: This is painful.

Yup, 10 skeins per bag. Extras are $2.25 each. I've got two things in my Ravelry queue that would be look great in this.... Trellis and Vine Pullover (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/trellis-and-vine-pullover) and Ingenue pullover (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ingenue).

Hhm, should I or shouldn't I??? :shrug:

Bad, bad people! :grphug:

I just ordered a full bag and two singles of Grape, got the extras just in case. I dithered for ages over the Suede Green as green is my favourite colour, but then I remembered just how many green sweaters are already in my closet! I'll definitely have to work my way up to the level of sweater maker, but at least I'll have the yarn ready for it!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! That's the best compliment I've had in a while. :mrgreen:

You have green and I have purple. LOL Variety is the spice of life, we need more spice. Good for you for choosing Grape! :thumbsup:

Oh my goodness, you've unleashed my yarn monster! The colors are all beautiful. My stashmania screams buy 2 of each bag! :drool:

Which I may just do for the Jojoland Rhythm (a yummy soft machine washable wool), just to get it 52% off plus free shipping. Muhahahahaha!!! :figureditout:

It was waiting patiently outside my front door when I got home from my day out on Saturday. LOVE the colour, the silk gives it a slight shiny look to it, so depending on the light it appears to be either Grape, or Grape with a bit of steel grey, and it sort of looks soft and heathered. And it's so soft and smooshy too! Wish I had the cash spare cause I'd be buying up bags of other colours too! :knitting:

I've used leche and it was soft to my hands, but unfortunately itchy to my neck. :pout:

I made a pattern with it.
