Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.

Bess needs help with her stash. What can she do? Click HERE

Yep, friends, although I have enough yarn for 6 sweaters, and enough wool to spin for 3 more - Although I was able to resist the trunk show of Mountain Colors (hand dyed angora to dye for) at The Knitting Basket and the Classic Elite Lush at The Knitters Cottage, I succumbed to a temptation beyond human resistance yesterday and bought this!

What is it? It's Copenhagen, by Lana Gatto. And it is a nylon mycrospun yarn that beats out every other fiber I've yet touched, for softness and loft. Nylon! From the wool lady. Just had to have it - 1 skein for $11.00, knitting up around 2.5 stitches to the inch. I'm making a detachable cowl collar to pop over other sweaters. Cast on 60 stitches on a circular needle, join and knit till it's long enough to look like a collar. I'm thinking maybe 10 inches long. Probably going to flare it out every 10 stitches over the last 2 inches or so, so that it will lie flat around my chest and shoulders.

And then there were the sale bins. I'll think about that tomorrow - at Tara.
