Which yarn? You decide.....
I can't decide which one of these to get. they are all so pretty. Since everything I've seen made here is so beautiful, and I haven't seen one thing that deserves a I thought I'd let you guys decide which one I should buy.

I'll likely make a scarf/hat out of it......

<-- Pixie

<--Rosemary

<-- Enchantment

<--- Camelot

It was a tough call. I was torn between rosemary and camelot, but went with the former since I could imagine it matching more things (at least in my wardrobe). By themselves, I think camelot is prettier.

I had an extremely hard time picking btween Camelot and Pixie. I chose Camelot.

IIR, Nikki said this yarn was icky to the touch. I'll find the post regarding this yarn. BRB.

ETA: I stand corrected. Nikki stated, "...Kinda thick-and-thin, which I don't like a whole lot, and a tiny bit stiff..." Her whole post is here.

I want that yarn, too, but need more reviews since I cannot touch it in person. I'm such a yarn Wh*re.

I got some from them the other day. I like the way it feels. It's kinda smooth to the touch, but not too slippery.

And their colors in person are absolutely beautiful!!! But I wold still be interested in that post.

I am torn between the rosemary and pixie but I think the pixie because even in the picture, the colors seem to pop to me.
