Oh! No fair!!!!! I love this!!!

Where the heck did you get this yarn and can I go buy some NOW! Seriously, I am dressed and ready, car keys in hand! Is this available in stores? Please don't tell me that I have to order it on-line and wait!!!

I love your cable patterns and continue to be impressed by everything that you do! Not only are you talented... you're seriously kind as well! How cool are you!!!

That's me! Kind, cool and in possession of the most beautiful yarn on the block!

I have no idea if this is available in stores. It's South West Trading Company Karaoke, in Mermaid, color 278.

I got it from www.knitpixie.com for my second batch--they were out of this color for this scarf so I got it from www.onefineyarn.com . I'm going to make a sweater with it next.

I got it really fast from onefineyarn, and the knitpixie shipped the next day.

Knitpixie has a better price, plus you get a 10% discount if you sign up for their newsletter. Also, SWTC has an offer for a free pair of needles if you order seven balls, AND I got a free sweater pattern for the Karaoke.

You could call around your local shops and see if they have it. I do most of my yarn buying on line since my 'good' shop is too far to drop in. I must say, though, that I order waaaaay too much because it's so easy to just 'click.'

That is amazing! Karaoke is definately on my wish list! I'm very interested to see how you get the ends to match up in the end.

Beautiful work!

I'm a little iffy on that myself. If it's long enough when I get to a purple section, I'll bind off there. If it looks like it'll be too long to wait for a purple section, I may just end it. It goes against my 'things have to balance and be symmetrical' nature, but maybe I'll just throw caution to the wind. :rofling: I'm so daring, aren't I?

I found their website. It lists local shops, but I haven't checked it yet.

Ingrid,

As usual, it's GORGEOUS!!

After seeing Rebecca's Clapotis in this, I started my Mom's shawl (you know, the one w/ the hair-like yarn) over using the 4 skeins of this same yarn. I'm almost through 1 skein of it, and it looks really pretty. The problem is I don't really want to throw away all the hard hours I put in on the original shawl. So, I'm iffy about finishing it in the Karaoke.

Seeing your scarf just makes me want to sing, though. It is *so* pretty ... and it reminds me of something ... I wish I could think of what it is ... When I look at it, I can't get the word "Technicolor" out of my head.
