Where did you see the gator yarn on sale? Is it on their site?
I've only seen it in conjunction with the kit.

Later...
Duhh! I just found the yarn on their sale page after getting an email from them saying the sale had been extended!

Stonington, now you can order just the pattern!
Go to the pattern page at the Morehouse Farm website and you'll see it.

Got my gator...
Hi,
Well, I got my gator and must say I like their packaging. I wound one of the hanks and am very dismayed at the amount of "field debris" in it. As a handspinner, I know how hard it is to clean fleece well.

So, after trying it a bit, I tore it out and (gasp!) will use Red Heart. I will save the gator wool for felting. My next one will be Cascade. I love their feel and colors.

How do I insert pictures? It wants a URL, I don't have one for them.

I'm on Raverly now - NaloMeli.

Thanks!

NaloMeli What I do is: Save Photo on computer and use paint to resize it so KH will accept the Photo. Then at the top of this page click POST REPLY (won't work if you click reply button after each message) type in message then click on the Paper Clip looking thing and it gives you the option to browse for a picture in your files on your computer, select file and upload. click on the paper clip again and it will show up as a little icon to the side on the screen click and insert.

I don't know if this is a long winded way of doing it, but it works for me so i am sticking with it.

Okay - here's the box with pattern and yarn, and what I decided to use since the lagoon, though lovely, was way too rough. Look at that little nose!!

You are quick. is the red heart the same thickness as the gator yarn or are you using smaller needles. looks good so far. I do like the blue gator yarn shame it did not work out. Have to say I am not thrilled with the yarn either but somebody suggested that it might be softer once it has been washed.

Yeah - the yarn has good qualities, but I'm going to use something different next time myself. This hasn't been bad, but picking little bits out of the wool is tedious, and mine keeps untwirling/splitting. I think I'm spoiled by Karabella.

On the happy side, I'm finally halfway through the body!! Just finished winding my 2nd hank into a ball this morning. How's everyone else's project going?

I'm on the second set of increases on the main body I think. Would have to retrieve it from another room to be sure, but it's getting there.
