My goodness - 2 posts in one day!!! I received a ball of yarn in the mail from Crystal Palace Yarns. It's their new Sausalito yarn and I can't wait to play with it. It's really soft - and durable, with fiber content of 80% Merino Wool and 20% Nylon. I am going to play with a lacy scarf but I am thinking this would make nice socks, too. The good news is that first shipments of the yarn should arrive mid to late February - in other words - SOON!
Will try to post progress of the scarf. Think I'll make another mug of tea and start knitting!
