hey guys! thanks for waiting so patiently, Wendy. Here is my update.
First off, I had this stuff:
which of course is recalled because of 'SYC' as Yorkie puts it ;) (Spontaneous Yarn Combustion for the rest of ya) i guess thats fine cuz the more i looked at it, the odder it was.
so i went to the LYS and got this:
Cascade Pima Tencel...OMG. petting the skeins was good until i knitted it up:
wow!!! it is the softest yarn i have used. i am loving it so much! plus the pattern is totally mindless and i cannot wait to wear it. should be a fast knit.
and i finally finished my Hurry Up Spring Armwarmers, and not a moment too soon. it is still winter here. even though saturday is the last official day, we will still be cold for a bit. the yarn....gosh. will anybody yell at me if i say Kureyon is not my favorite yarn? Just about everytime i went to make the 'knot' where you knit into three stitches in the front/back/front it broke...i swear the yarn was only thinly spun in those places and i had to keep spit splicing it and it would untwist and argh. plus the colors .....i don't like how the one has no orange/red. but i guess they look okay together. if it weren't for the amazing vibrancy of the colors and the softness of the FO, i would hate these:
and my new toy!
it's a Zen Micro...same touch technology as the iPod but for a fraction of the price...plus, it's a cute size and it glows blue!! heh heh
guess that's it for now. will go knit my scarf and whatnot. there is homework to be done, alas....
