Get some cashmere yarn for a sweater! It'll make you feel special and sexy everytime you wear it! Plus, knitting with cashmere is like knitting a cloud!

Do you happen to know of a pattern for a plus-size sweater knit with cashmere yarn? That would be wonderful!!

What design is the vera bradley bag? My sister has one in botanica and I have a little one in capri melon.

Can you GET cashmere at Joanns? Last time I went, it was mostly acrylic and acrylic blends. They do tend to have decent pattern books and needles, though, maybe order a ballwinder if you don't have one already?

Of course, with the cash, I'd totally splurge on cashmere or (if budget didn't allow for cashmere) enough alpaca for a sweater. mmm, alpaca sweater.

I dont know the exact name... but It's has the word Java in it. And it is like blue and brown vintage-y looking. I love it!!
