Yes I would love to see a photo as well. what are you going to make with your precious. Or is it still in the touchy feely stage. I have some I just take out sometimes to touch and cuddle then it is put back in storage, still don't know what to make with it.

Well it's a hand dyed yarn from where I live (Nova Scotia, Canada) and it's the most vibrant indigo blue with little light spots thru out. I would love to add a pic but i've never done it before. If someone tells me how to do it in very simple terms I WOULD LOVE TO POST IT!! Oh and i made my favourite baby booties with it the first day that I got it and i just finished the first bootie of a second set. I've only had it two days!!!! I thought that i would use the entire thing on booties just so that I have lots in stock because EVERYONE I know is having babies and I have had requests from people that want me to knit some for friends of theres. And once i'm done with my bootie mania? I think the dark side may swallow me up! I've never seen such beautiful colours! It really is unique to quality yarn isn't it? I could never find a coulor like this at Michaels. OH no...I feel myself slipping away......:grphug: :aww: :inlove: :muah: :hug: :heart: Please someone tell me how to post a picture and i'll do it tonight. i like it when you can see them as you read, i dont like it when you need to click on a link. Help me guys! I'd love to show you!!!!!!!

you can add a pic two ways

1. If it is on your hard drive, click on the "Manage Attachments" button (see attachment) And then find the file on your hard drive to share here.

2. If your pic is on flickr (or whatever online site you use), you should go the the photo, then click on "All Sizes" just above the pic. Choose the medium size, and then copy the pictures URL. In your reply post, click on the little landscape button and paste in the URL you copied.

Hope that helps!

I am so happy you like the booties! This is my first time posting pics. The pattern is called Christines baby booties
http://fuzzygalore.biz/patterns/cbbooties.shtml
they are actually posted in the patterns section of this site. I hope that this link works but if not just google "christines baby booties" and you'll find it. I have the pattern memorized and like i said earlier it only takes a hour or so to make one bootie. Let me know if you make them !!!!! I would LOVE to see your pictures.

Megan, the yarn is beautiful, but you didn't tell us that you had Wonder Dog living with you. How do you get her to climb the walls like that? :roflhard:

OK, I'm tired, put up new book shelves today, and it's time for bed.
