Congrats on your pending crown and welcome to dental royalty. The good news...once you get the gold one, it's wonderful.


I'm really happy to see a lifesized picture of the oxblood yarn. I ordered some of it and the natural to work on a project for the boyfriend.

Inexpensive, good, calls to me.


Great minds think alike, I guess! I ordered some Oxblood and Deep Sea Blue. I'll be making something with cables but what??I've been looking at KnitPicks since it arrived yesterday.

I've been looking at knitpicks, the yarn is so inexpensive, made me wonder...have you ever used it? is it any good???? great prices...


Thanks, Roxi - I'm looking at getting through this as my "crowning achievement." Hehehe...I know, someone slap me!

I agree, Haley - it's really hard for me not to stock the stash, but I'm trying to do more knitting & less buying!

Cyndy & Lisa - Gee, I could be the guinea pig & order some yarn, then report on it. Yeah, yeah - then I'd be spending $$ as a FAVOR to my knitting friends. That makes it perfectly logical, right?

I'm just so darned tempted.....


Oh, how cruel of you. I've been thinking about doing a(nother) Ribby Cardi in Coffee Bean Brown and Oxblood, and now seeing a huge picture of the Oxblood, I can tell it's even more beautiful than I'd thought.

And, I'll concur with the great minds think alike thing... I've been eyeing the Deep Sea Blue, too, trying to decide what to make with it.

But, I'm not even close to finishing my first Ribby Cardi (which is also my first sweater, other than an unseamed and unfinished baby sweater), so it's hard to justify the purchase. I'm just going to keep checking elann, and if one of the colors I want drops below their 50+ amount, I'll have to place me another order.


Oh, and Bron...

I agree with you about the Interweave Knits issue. The sleeves on the "A Good Bias" shrug look to be an interesting lace pattern, but shrugs are not something I'll ever be interested in, and the sleeves are way short, even on the model (yet not quite short enough to look like they're supposed to be 3/4 length).

I'd like to see a better picture of the paisley shawl, but that's it as far as being even a little interesting in this issue.


I agree with you about the patterns in the new IK. THe only thing that really caught my eye was the sock pattern. But I just ordered from Amazon, the "French Women Don't" book. I already have the other one, I just haven't had a chance to read it yet. I also hate the dentist. Althouhg I do have a prescription from my dentist form Valium that I have to take before I go in to see her - even for cleaning! One pill for cleaning and 2 for another thing else. I have to bring the bottle with me just in case I need a third pill. And yes, someone has to either drive me or walk me there!

Haley after reading all the comments I'm jonesing for some "Deep Blue Sea". And that sort of color looks -good- on me. Hmmmm...time for some pattern diving.


I tend to be like you, Leisel - when the yarn drops below 50+ THAT spurs me on to order! Certainly helps me make up my mind in a hurry. The Oxblood is really a hard color to describe but you can tell by the pic is very, very rich. Now I'm wanting some Deep Blue Sea too! Sigh.

That shrug you mentioned & the shawl were the only two things that caught my eye also. I really think that IK is a blah issue. Too bad since it's usually my fav mag. :(

Mia - I can't wait to get the French diet books. How interesting that you have them too! I used to be really scared of the dentist - I had a 'scrip for Valium too - but that's gotten better with age. I think that after a root canal I can take anything. :::grin:::

Me too, Haley, me too!


I just had the temp put on for my 5th crown. (I keep having to open my mouth and count molars sans fillings to remember how many I've had. The good news is, it's been 14 years between the 4th and 5th.) Anyway, new dentist with this one, too, and I've never had a more comfortable temp -- no sharp edges, no funny glue taste, no digging, etc. Here's hoping that your first will be your last!
