Wow, I LOVE the Cool Crochet yarn...best thing they've put out in ages!!! Seems the local WM is always out of the brown, interestingly enough...

I've been arguing with myself to not go back and scoop up all the cones they have for the SWS (my budget can't take the shock). I've been rolling balls so it's more manageable to work with and working on the bunny slipper pattern from the happy hooker and I'm in *love* with the SWS. Which is unusual for me because i have this thing with wool -- when I handle it I get that shiver like when you bite down on tin foil or if you hear nails on a chalkboard. But I don't get that at all with this blend, it's awesome. Plus the colours are gorgeous.

Oh, btw, if you all get the chance to grope a skein of Patons Rumor, go for it. If I ever see that in a mill end cone I'm all over it, damn the budget! Smiley

Thanks for the comments guys!

So I got up obscenely early this morning and decided to head out to the Yarn Factory Outlet in Listowel.

oww it's Listowel in Canada  Sad For a moment I thought you meant Listowel in Ireland, and I was getting all excited 'cause that's close to were the inlaws live, and we'll be there a christmas time... I could just picture myself coming back home with an extra bag full of yarn...

Gorgeous colours!

I'm surprised you find it easier to work with balls and not just straight off the cone, but maybe cones are different and yours is difficult. I've started a blanket and am working from a cone-it's fantastic as the wool doesn't go zooming off around the floor...

It's more about portability, really. I have a good dozen (maybe 2 dozen, I haven't counted recently, hee) projects on the go right now and in the mornings before I head out I'll grab the one that says "take me!" the loudest to work on when I'm sitting around somewhere. Plus when I roll my own balls they're flat bottom center pulls, those suckers don't roll.  Cheesy I've also been able to eliminate any knots in the yarn this way too -- hit a knot, thats the end of the ball.

That is an awesome find.  I just broke the bank at the Classic Elite outlet (http://www.hubmillsstore.com/) in Lowell, MA.  Those places are so dangerous for your wallet.

Can't wait to see the resulting projects!

ok, have to brag a tiny little bit. went garage saling a couple weeks ago and got all this yarn for $7!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited! but, down side? I'm in an accelerated nursing program for the next 16 months and won't have time to use it.  Sad just more incentive to study hard and get done, right?!
