Well, if there was ever a crack cocaine of yarn, this seems to be it. The colorways are absolutely scrumptious!!!!! I sense large purchases being made in the future .....

I was just checking out my local yarn shops website and I noticed she has added the whole list of her yarns and she has the artyarns. She has Wool Fur, Ultramerino, Supermerino, Handpaint striped sock yarn.
I can't wait to get back there to check them out in person,

I bought some of the Supermerino for the test knit that I'm doing for Denise (foldedbird). I really like how it knits up, and I really love the color (mine is a mix of blues, very pretty).

That color is pretty fibergirl. It looks like what the color was I just used from my grandsons sweater.

I saw some Pima cotton at Knitpicks, and I still have my Birthday certificate--How would that be for a little boy's sweater?? Alabama doesn't get very very cold--and I want it to be soft and comfy. Now that I think I might dare do a sweater at all--I want to use just the right yarn for little Davy Boy :heart: down in Alabama!! If there is a blend that would maybe be softer and has a little miore give--culd you maybe give me some tips??

Thanx girls!! :XX:

BOY!! It has really rained here in Tidewater VA all night and all day! :shock: My poor Kitty cat, Scraps is Soooo depressed...he's just moping around. Me--I love it--I don't have any reason to get out and I can knit, and read blogs and surf the net until we have to go do our Christmas cantata ONE MORE TIME tonight!! THREEnihgts is 2 too many---standing for and hour and a half is just too much for many of us,, But it always gets me more ready for Christmas, doesn't you?? :inlove:

I used knitpicks' crayon, which is the pima cotton for some things for my granddaughter... these spiral socks (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2005%20a%20few%20knitting%20projects/bc1aad4b.jpg), this poncho (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2005%20a%20few%20knitting%20projects/eccfdc93.jpg) using mitered blocks of the Crayon, and this halter & hat (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2005%20a%20few%20knitting%20projects/IM000183.jpg) & my step-daughter tells me that Allysa LOVES all of it...it's very, very soft. Although a friend of mine @ knitpicks suggests cold water wash, flat to dry & a brief run thru the dryer on air to make it nice & poofy again ;)
