Glad you got your yarn. I don't know how many of each color they started with (if it was an even number, or if the initial numbers were low), but I missed out on the Jasper, and I think it might be a discontinued color, because I haven't seen it elsewhere. BUGGARS!

On the other hand, I went on a Cotton-Ease binge yesterday (which would have happened regardless of whether or not I ordered anything from elann), so, I'm reasonably well guilted about spending money. :)


Bron, one little thing, I think you need some self tanner for your arms. Even I am not that fish belly white anymore. But I love the color.


Hi Leisel - They started with they're standard 50+ - I have no idea what the actual starting count was - but I was amazed at how quickly it sold out. The Jasper was there for about an hour or two & then it was gone. Can't wait to hear about your Cotton Ease binge! :::Grin:::

Mia - I like to think of it not as white, but as avoiding skin cancer. ;) But yeah - I need to dip into my bottle of self-tanner again - it would really show up nicely against the pink.


That whole "running hot" thing wouldn't ahve anything at all to do with living in New Mexico, would it? ;-)


Ooooh it looks so nice! I love the color especially! Way to go :)


Hehehe....You might have something there, Shannon. Of course, I was born in Kansas which is pretty darn hot too. I think I need to move to Montana. :::grin:::

Thanks Tifff! I was starting to think everyone really hated it! Trouble is, no sweater/tank really looks good on a gal like me...but I'm trying to change it! ::wink::

Funny thing is, I got a lot of comments on "Stacy" and I thought I'd really like it - (that crocheted one I just did) - but I think I'm going to frog it. It's too heavy for someone who overheats like I do and it's too long. So...maybe 3rd time will be the charm with that yarn. :)


Cynthia is beautiful; the color is great! Poor Stacy, but I do understand since I live in hot, humid Charleston, SC


It came out well! Good color, too.


Thanks Vera & Jennifa. :) I wore it yesterday with the black pants & felt quite chic. :::grin:::

I agree, "Poor Stacy," - I'd still like to do that pattern - but probably will use the "Flash" called for next time. Now I just need to decide how to use all that lovely cotton that I screwed up with both knit & crochet....maybe I should try macrame??? hehehe


I love it! It came out nice! I am not a pink person, but it looks great on you!


I have about 16,000 skeins of cotton ease and that Hot Knits book. Hmmmm....what am I thinking?

Looks good.


Beautiful! You've done a great job!
I've also finished a project using CE ... my first time using this yarn and I love it! 100% agree with you ... but too bad that I can only use my just built up stash now!
I am tempted to knit Cynthia now!


Cynthia turned out lovely! The color is great!!
