Oh, I'll second that! Harvey St is right off Stratford Rd near the Sara Lee building.

Very cool place.

Only other LYS in town is quite rude, IMO, so Knit Picky is the way to go.

Thanks folks -- Silk Garden comes in what I'd call a skein -- definitely not a long twisted hank, and wasn't rewound at the LYS.

Guess I'll just keep untwisting by hand!

This is the first time I've worked with Noro Silk Garden, and I find the working yarn getting twisted up between the skein and my work -- obviously don't want it twirled up tight when I knit it, but...

I'm interested in this as well. I'm considering doing the Bombshell sweater from Big Girl Knits, and it was done in Lion & Lamb -- but I can't justify a $300 sweater!!!

What was the pattern for the lettuce-edge socks? I'm looking for a "short sock" pattern (a little more than anklet socks, but not halfway up my calf socks either).

Label says 55% merino wool, 33% microfibre, and 12% cashmere.

I may give Malabrigo another chance as something, not sure what yet. Might also have been they didn't have colorways that thrilled me.
