I also placed an order with Knitpicks last week. I just had to have a new gadget, the electric row counter and also 3 hanks of Alpaca Cloud in Iris [for the Seascape Shawl by Fiber Trends]that is a part of their new line of yarns being offered.
This row counter is going to come in handy for me...you see, I have a toddler that swipes the paper and pens I use to mark rows, to scribble her John A. MacDonald on [well, I am Canadian]. This I can tuck under my shirt and hopefully she won't be none the wiser...yeah, I know what you're all thinking...my toddler is smarter than me and will find me out in no time...that I shouldn't be fooling myself. Please, just think it and don't say it...a mom can dream, can't she?
I am quite impressed with the Alpaca Cloud. Nice and soft and beautiful in colour. This will be my first time knitting with Alpaca and I know I'm going to really enjoy it.
Here is a close-up to show the pretty heathery colour of the Alpaca Cloud in the colour Iris.
I must also apologise for being a "butt" and not mentioning where you could buy the knitting bags that I posted about below. You can either buy them at Knit 'N' Tyme, or Double Diamond Knits. Those are the only two sources I know that carry them.
By the way, I've ordered myself the Fushia/Lime bag. Thanks for your suggestions and imput.
Now, I'm off to finish Mariah.
Keep On Knitting...
