I got my Knitter's Review newsletter (http://knittersreview.com/article_yarn.asp?article=/review/product/050505_a.asp) this morning, and they really sang the praises of Knit Pick's new summer cotton blend yarn, Shine (http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/yarn_display.aspx?itemid=5420122). I can hardly wait to try it! :D

Wow, thanks for the link to that info. I had just convinced myself to stop buying yarn til I used up what I have....now I have a dilemma!

OK - After reading that review, I bought the Apricot Shine to make Blaze (http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATTblaze.html) with.

But only because my coworker wanted me to buy some wool of the andes to make him some Fiber Trends slippers & I HAD to buy SOMETHING else to put me over that $30 mark!! :oops:

Good thinking ;) Kelly. I ALWAYS do whatever necessary to get free shipping...I figure...I would eventually buy the yarn anyway!

Well, as long as you have a valid reason to justify it, Kelly. ;) ;) ;)

I would love to make that pattern for my dd, but I am so not ready for Knitty's piquant levels, yet. :verysad:

WHY? Just be BRAVE!!! I try not to look at a pattern in its ENTIRITY. I mean, I read through the whole thing first, but then I just take it line by line. Its not so scary that way!

I had to kick your butt about the circs, Renna....do we have to go through this AGAIN??? ;)
