« Lots Of Stuff - Including Pesky Picots | Main | Mohair, Knitter's & The Last Garage Sale Ever »

August 27, 2005



The pics were not there yesterday but they are now. And good luck with the garage sale. And the mohair sweater too.


Most of the pics were gone for me too. Glad they're here now. :)


Hi Bron, Happy Birthday! Mine's tomorrow (44, but who's counting).

You have led me astray! I now am the proud owner of 5 skeins of CE Blueberry ($14 with shipping) and also Pinguin Le Yarn3 -- 7 skeins, in Cherry Red, and Phildar Kadischa Yarn 17 skeins, 12 of which are cream colored, the others black and grey. ($41 for all 24 skeins). IOW, I found the "yarn" on eBay!

But you have also inspired me and I see a number of lovely sweaters in my future. Mostly knit cardigans, 'cause I wear one all the time. And I loooovvveee sweaters!

I better go get busy, yes? :-)


Those are way cool stitch markers. What are those black things they're on? I've only ever made them with wire.

And I'm so jealous of your CE... that's my favorite color (not just in CE... really, my favorite color).

Happy Early Birthday! When is the real event?


Ug. Mohair. Just finished a shawl-ette for DD and I used Jo Sharp - hated it. Very scratchy on my legs (you know, as I'm wearing shorts and all in this heat) and just kind of unpleasant to knit with. I won't be using it again, but hope to find something better.


Thanks Larry - the sale went so/so - I swear it's the last one ever - for real this time! The mohair's going ok - but I swear it's the last time for that too! ha!

Andrea - Thanks for the pics heads up - from now on when they disappear for me, I'll assume no-one can see them!

Cec - Just call me the Pied Piper of eBay yarn, eh? Sounds like you got some great deals!

Leisel - the black things are rubber stitch markers - I've seen them in catalogs, never in person. I love lavendar too - I'm thrilled to get more CE in that color. :) And my B-day is Sept. 14th - yikes - just around the corner!

Jenn - Definitely unpleasant in any weather. At least I can say I gave it a good try! One sweater is MORE than enough. :::grin::


Very cool about the plum CE...I am making a trade right now with somebody for 3 skeins of that! That mohair stuff looks great, but I have worked with stuff similar to that and it is very difficult to frog.


Wendy - anytime I can stash more CE, I'm there! I really love the Sugarplum color too. :)
