Queensland Leche On Sale At Little Knits
I'm sooo tempted by a full bag, on sale at $19.99 instead of $90! Can't make up my mind between Grape, Denim, Suede Green or Charcoal, would make a lovely simple jumper/sweater.

Anyone used this yarn before?

I purchased some queensland tweed recently - I really like it a lot. I wonder what quantity a bag is? I would have a hard time deciding between the colors also.

They tell what's in the bag, how many balls, you can get the info on the balls. I'm not looking, I'm not looking, I'm not looking. I have to go back to ignoring this thread.

I missed that, 10 skeins per bag! I've already spent my budget - what can I sell? This is painful.

Yup, 10 skeins per bag. Extras are $2.25 each. I've got two things in my Ravelry queue that would be look great in this.... Trellis and Vine Pullover and Ingenue pullover.

Hhm, should I or shouldn't I???

Bad, bad people!

I just ordered a full bag and two singles of Grape, got the extras just in case. I dithered for ages over the Suede Green as green is my favourite colour, but then I remembered just how many green sweaters are already in my closet! I'll definitely have to work my way up to the level of sweater maker, but at least I'll have the yarn ready for it!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! That's the best compliment I've had in a while.

You have green and I have purple. LOL Variety is the spice of life, we need more spice. Good for you for choosing Grape!
