I received from Ladybugger and it's so lovely!

Ladybugger is so kind that she sent me two skeins!
One skein is 80% wool and 20% alpaka. It's Creative Focus by Nashua in Espresso. (The darker yarn.)
The other is Alpaka (100% alpaka) by Fantasy yarns in 208.

They match wonderfully and are just what I was hoping for. I'm thinking of making a newsboy cap or some sort of not-winter hat.

Thanks again Ladybugger!

YAY!!! I feel like a dolt. I totally forgot to take a picture of it before I sent it, I'm glad you posted, ladybugger. I went to the yarn shop and straight to the post office with it. I was so excited!  Cheesy

Now I'm psyched for goodies in my mailbox. I may accost my mailperson tomorrow, she knits too and will totally understand.  Grin

Chuck Norris does not knit. He bangs the table, and the shockwaves force the yarn to create clothing.

Hi there EowynUlysses, Just wondering what you thought of the Nashua yarn. I just was browsing online and saw it at Jimmy Beans yarn. It looked pretty reasonably priced, nice colors and the right gauge that I'm looking for. (Thinking about doing my first KAL with the Lion Brand Fisherman's shrug). What do you think? Is it a good mild weather yarn for a sweater? I live in Califonia and sooner or later the rain will stop and it WILL be spring! I would love to wear this cute shrug!!

Thanks for your input!!

By the way, here is the link to the pattern I'm thinking about buying this yarn for: http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/50718.html

Well, I haven't worked with it yet (stupid stupid physics!) but I don't see why it wouldn't work. It would probably be a bit warm for a spring here, but I am in the sunny South (It is supposed to be in the 70s for the rest of the week.) It is a worsted weight yarn, or the one I have is.
The pattern looks really cute! It seems like it would be really thick and warm with the Thick and Quick. If I were thinking spring I'd go worsted weight cotton, but I don't think that will work with that pattern. Then again, what I know about knitting you can fit in a matchbox without taking the matches out first.
Good luck!

Here is the hat I made with the yarn from ladybugger. (Is it okay to put it here?)


I used this pattern. http://www.hometown.aol.com/tepperleen/page2.html
It calls for chunky weight, but I just made the first rows slightly differently, so that it would be big enough.
So you could probably do something similar, 2lilrugrats.

I'm so sorry for being so out of it. My Grandma passed away and everything has been hectic and crazy and over here. I feel like I'm walking in a haze.

But without further ado...here is the fabulous yarn that Sharc sent me.



100% wool by Noro. The colors are even more amazing than you can see in the picture. I think I'm going to try to make a little clutch with it. Smiley Thank you again Sharc!
