I'm just wondering if you've made any decisions about your Spa yarn...think you'll maybe use it for that sweater pattern you were talking about?
I've been using the Spa for lacy fingertip towels. Of course for decorative purposes only. (Don't think they'd be very absorbent and besides they are far to pretty to let anyone touch.
) After I finish with making some for my bathrooms, I'm going to knit some up for Christmas gifts.
This morning I went to both Michael's and Hobby Lobby looking for yarn. Found a yarn I've never bought before, but it's kinda/sorta similar to NC's Spa.....It's Patons Silk Bamboo: 70% Viscose from Bamboo & 30% Silk. Already been "playing" with it and love the way it knits. Also love the feel which I think is soooo important.
Now here's the big difference between the two. Here in TX where I shop for yarn, the Spa is $4.99 per skein, (251 yds). The Patons is also $4.99 per skein, but you only get 102 yds.
I know it can be difficult deciding on which yarn for which project. Let me know how you're coming along! Jeanie
