Naked in the yarn…

What is it about some yarns that really make you want to roll around naked in them? I mean, I’ve felt up many a yarn in my day (lol) but there is one that makes me nuts- Patons SWS. I LOVE this yarn. LOVE IT.  I use all my Micheals coupons to buy it, a skein at a time! I’m currently knitting a scarf (2×2 rib) out of the red/pink/brown colorway (don’t have the label with me!) and it’s such a pleasure to knit.  I also have several skeins of the Natural Blue colorway that I plan on using for a Jack sweater.  Today I used my 50% off coupon for a skein of the Natural Navy- I want to make Bron’s Brain Band with it. In other yarn news, I’ve been winning several fabulous lots of yarn for super cheap prices on ebay. The first of the lot arrived today, but it’s at my Moms and I dont’ wanna drive over there till tomorrow. So, I must wait. I just won an auction for 7 skeins of Cestari, a fabulous yarn from a local farm in VA- when I lived there, I purchased a skien of this for my OSSP and fell in love. Speaking of the OSSP project, I don’t believe I ever shared what I made for my pal. Here is a pic snatched from her blog, since I forgot to snap one before sending it off-

I used Patons Classic Wool and Cascade 220, and a free pattern from the Lion Brand website. I finished it off with a snap closure, and I think it turned out rather cute!! Not too bad for my first felting project! I had to hand felt it, because it just wasn’t coming out right in the machine, and my mother was freaking out that I would waste water trying to shrink something on purpose 🙂
