Hehe!

All of my carrying on and worrying and I got an email from Yarn Market today that my order has shipped!!. Just when I was finally going to call and ask what had happened.

I am so psyched! Though of course it is going to be another 2-3 weeks at least before the yarn is actually in my hands.

But hey, at least I know it's on the way.... And it's a big order too I got some stuff for a couple of projects because I figure if I'm going to pay for international shipping I might as well stock up.

In the meantime, I will continue to work on the never ending Point of the Wave Stole. I am trying to knit half a repeat a day on each pannel but sometimes lack the discipline.

Garnstudio DROPS Bomull-lin, Rowan Bamboo Tape, Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool, Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo DK and some other yarns that you would also have to get from USA
Bonsai is physicaly heavier than Denim Silk (as in, the same yardage weighs more) but Yarndex listed them as almost the same guage. I did my guage swatch today for the Roundabout Leaf Tank and I'm bang on with a size 6 needle (pattern suggests 7) and the fabric is still drapy.

So, I'll see how it goes...
