their prices for their yarn are already pretty low. i don't think you are going to see them TOOOO Much lower than what they already are. Even when they clearanced some of their sock yarns it didn't go down too much because there just isn't to far for them to go down.

Bummer. They do seem fabulous.
Do a search here. There have been several threads about them. Apparently they are comparable to Addis, not Boyes.

I love it... It has a great sheen, it shows the pattern well and it's lovely and soft. I'm using it in oatmeal and it's very pretty. The only drawback is that the scarf is a little narrower than i would have liked since Elegance is DK weight (which is what the pattern calls for), so if i were to use it again i think i'd extend out the border pattern or the area around the cables a bit to widen the scarf overall.



btw, i think KP's Quarry "Ubatuba" is my favorite yarn name of all time!!

thanks and ubatuba is funny sounding. i wonder if it means something? my OS is ubuntu which translates from several african languages to mean "humanity to others" but my husband calls it "the wifes alternative to debian" hes a geek. im only geeky about art and music. the various linux incarnations have frustrated me to no end. ubuntu is friendly though.

i have a tendency to run at the mouth.

I just checked and it looks like they added another new yarn. Essential Tweed! I wonder how many more they are adding?

Oh, you don't help, you don't help at all. I just spent $80 on yarn on my honeymoon, I don't think my DH will let me spend any more money right now. Damn.
