New yarn acquisitions...................

BEROCCO SEDUCE:
It still hasn't decided what it wants to be yet.......I'm thinking shawl? another Clapotis maybe? So far it hasn't draped much on my swatches and it could be I haven't picked the right needle size, I'm going to try a swatch with 15's to see what it does.
I love this bag! It's from the magazine Knit n Style, April 2008. It calls for 5 hanks of Alpaca with a Twist Big Baby. I'll have to see what I have in my stash that will work for this bag. The finished size is 15x12x12. Perfect!
Spring (nearly summer here in the south) is upon us and that means poison ivy is out there just waiting for me. I am very susceptible to that stuff. I have a cat that wanders everywhere and probably wallows in it and then comes up to me and wants petted, and of course I accommodate that purrrrrring request. My brother, who is also afflicted with this malady, found this soap and says it is wonderful and so lovingly forwarded some to his dear sister, me!!!! I will not say that I can't wait to try it because I would rather it get old in my medicine cabinet than have that dreaded rash and itchiness. I am thankful for this soap though, just in case.

I have new sock yarn from the Luxury Sock of the Month Club. This stuff is gorgeous!

I can't wait to cast on for it. I may not use the pattern that came with it, I may just want to knit some mindless stockinette socks with some ribbing at the top. I've got a pair of socks on the needles that just won't get done because of the 8 row pattern. (I may have to frog them because I'm still on sock #1) I knit socks because I love hand-knit socks, but I don't like the painful patterns that I can't memorize. Must re-think my sock knitting!


I saw this In Line Vest on display at my LYS and I fell in love with it. I bought the Noro yarn for it, Taiyo. It is 40% cotton, 30% silk, 15% wool and 15% nylon and it's knit on US 9.


I love this colorway. Different from the display model which had too much yellow and brown for me.

I will be interested in what you do with the "Seduce" yarn. We have it new in our LYS. I need some inspiration.....

Love the bag too...
