Okay, some more yarn I'm not going to use. I'm still sad about the Alpaca Silk, after finding alpaca makes me itch. I was going to make a basic st st tee from it. Oh well. If it doesn't sell, I guess I can make something for someone else?

Okay, 6 hanks of Blue Sky Alpaca in the champagne color. One hank has been wound into a ball from which I swatched a bit, but it's all still there. $35 + shipping. This yarn has a beautiful sheen because of the 50% silk content and is really really soft to the touch. It's about a sport weight.

5 skeins of Lion Brand Microspun in the lilac color. Again, this yarn is really really soft, but since I bought I've come to not like the feel of microfiber so much. For this reason I also don't like DB Cashmerino as much as most people. I swatched from a couple of the balls, but unraveled it and it's all still there. Anyway, $12 plus shipping.

6 skeins KnitPicks Merino Style in the Asparagus color. I like this color in principal, but the past several times I've been thinking of making something, I never want to use this color. This yarn has not even been swatched. $13 and that will include shipping.

Finally 2 balls of of Pinguoin Panache Mohair. 78% mohair, 13% wool, 9% nylon. I bought this in South Africa loving the color, but again, itched by mohair. 2 balls of 50 grams 100 meters each. One has been swatched from, but unraveled and it's all there. $8 and that will include shipping.

Andrea, I don't have a pattern. I always figure I can make one. :teehee: Or just find one I like and adjust for gauge. Like this one:

of course, mine would have been tighter than all of these. :eyebrow:
