What's your favorite source for that stuff, Becca? Does it come in black? Does it have a nice drape to it? Im thinking about Knitty's COZY...

KK, I really want to do Cozy, too! I had thought about the alpaca/silk from Knitpicks. Do you think it needs a yarn with some definition? Let me know what you decide to use, please.

I actually have the yarn lined up for three more projects after I finish this baby kimono, but I've been working on this one for about five weeks now (the first one took me five days :rollseyes: ). However, I keep thinking and thinking about COZY, so it may get bumped to the top of the list.

I was thinking about Knitpicks' Elegance...I like the SHEEN it has. The Andean Silk has some of that, too, but I think the Elegance is just a tad yummier.

The reason Im also considering the Soysilk is because (1) Rebecca loves it so much and has me interested, and (B) I knit Traveling Vines in Berroco's denimsilk and I liked the HEFT of it for a wrap.

I'm going to go over to the LYS and plant myself in their easy chair for a bit. I'm going to check out her soysilk. She handed me some last night, I think. More SEx? You bet! No more classes today, I'm going to take an hour off before I clean the house.

Co-signing....

I drove over to my LYS (the real one, not the craft store) and actually felt some of the natural fibers... ***biting my fist***

I'm knitting with crap, dude.

I'm finishing my projects and not starting another with anything but yummy yarn.

It's a slippery slope, my friend, a very slippery slope!! Glad to see we'll be seeing you down here at the bottom in our piles of wool and alpaca! :rofling:

Its amazing how great that stuff feels isn't it? I am dying to finish the poncho that I am working on so that I can get to work with my new yummy yarn!

I am also trying to figure out how to talk my hubby into buying some wool so that I can make a booga bag and then its on to Clogs!

*sigh*

Now I'm really in trouble. I have a shopping bag at knithappens with 5 (6?) balls of Blue Sky Bulky Hand Dye (half the size and weight of the ones I get now. for 2 bucks..so I need more of it) in Peace Pink that are 14.50 or so a ball.

I need not another thing to spend money obsessively on...I promise you. I already have a conditioner, candle, incense/holder, and essential oil fetish that requires plenty of funding.

At least I get something I can KEEP out of this tho. Cept the expensive yarn is for a dear, dear friend - who while she is very dear, is still not me. *whine*...

Well, I guess I get to keep her, wearing the yarn... :thinking:

Oh dear. I'm still typing aren't I?
