i love you red
meet cashsilk, 676, from laines du nord. it is 50% extra fine merino, 25% silk, 25% cashmere.
yes, my red told me about the sale and is going to be my long distance supplier. /me sighs
so she calls me to chat, tells me there's a sale going on - you get more of a discount if you buy 10 items...i got 14...damn you red, i probably could've gotten away with 12...but she convinced me that the extra balls i could make a cute hat or something
so what am i going to use it for? last minute knitted gift's hourglass sweater.
i went on a search looking for a sample sweater. sweet georgia uses 9 skiens of about 96/99yards but the knit picks says 11 skiens of about 99 yards... and i'm getting 14 of 67yards... so i'll end up between the two.
/me crosses fingers that enough yarn was purchased.
oh well. i'm excited. i love top down sweaters and i'm sure i'll figure out some use for it!
oh and red says it's squishy =)
