You must have a wonderful memory for yarns, if said thing was years ago. It is indeed red heart bikini - and all of my roommates (I have 7+) have been making fun of me for it, as it is, apparently, starting to look thong-ish when I fold it up (the end is tightly scrolled up and looks stringy, the front is exactly as wide as in the picture, and they're all excited to see a bikini for some reason. o.o; )
My nephew's sweater will be completed in Red Heart Mexicana. if you haven't seen it, it's along the same variegated thought train, only the colors are way bold. Picture later, when I assuredly get confused and require help. ^^; The price I pay for boredom, neh?
I also have to admit -- my LYS is definitely wal-mart. I haven't found anything else. I have a local fabric store, but they are purely a fabric store, no yarn or other crafts. So I hear all these wonderful-sounding yarns (particularly on knitty -- does anyone there ever knit in anything found at wal-mart?) and I am sad. But I will prevail. There has to be an lys around this blasted town someplace. ^^
PS: railhead - I saw your scarf. I don't remember if I posted on it yet, but if I didn't,
it's really awesome. I'm happy I'm not the only newbie wandering about, and good luck with finishing it before you want to fling it across the room in boredom!
