I can't decide which one of these to get. they are all so pretty. Since everything I've seen made here is so beautiful, and I haven't seen one thing that deserves a :?? I thought I'd let you guys decide which one I should buy.

I'll likely make a scarf/hat out of it......

It was a tough call. I was torn between rosemary and camelot, but went with the former since I could imagine it matching more things (at least in my wardrobe). By themselves, I think camelot is prettier.

well I was sort of torn between Pixie and Camelot but if they were sitting out and I could only have one, I would have grabbed Camelot first.

I had an extremely hard time picking btween Camelot and Pixie. I chose Camelot.

IIR, Nikki said this yarn was icky to the touch. I'll find the post regarding this yarn. BRB.

ETA: I stand corrected. Nikki stated, "...Kinda thick-and-thin, which I don't like a whole lot, and a tiny bit stiff..." Her whole post is here. (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?p=298106&highlight=mcy#298106/)

I want that yarn, too, but need more reviews since I cannot touch it in person. I'm such a yarn Wh*re. :roflhard:

I got some from them the other day. I like the way it feels. It's kinda smooth to the touch, but not too slippery.

And their colors in person are absolutely beautiful!!! But I wold still be interested in that post.

I am torn between the rosemary and pixie but I think the pixie because even in the picture, the colors seem to pop to me.

I'd go for the rosemary, myself. They're all lovely, though!

Hey, I just went to the seller's ebay store, and they have so many more choices! I think my fave out of all of them is camo (http://cgi.ebay.com/MCY-Handpainted-hand-dyed-Wool-Silk-Yarn-Camo_W0QQitemZ290061576152QQihZ019QQcategoryZ36599 QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItem).

Camelot! It just stood out for me because I love anything with pink and gold and green in it. But all the colours are so beautiful. Any one you pick will become an amazing FO.

I looked at all their auctions and oh my goodness, I wish I didn't hate paypal so much ... :wall:

Ok, this seller is super cool. Someone must have bought some yarn from her and gave her my name, because she refunded me $3.00 on my last order. That's really cool!!
