I got some booty(get your mind out of the gutter-pirate, not the other kind!). Mango moon has these spectacular circular needles called tattoo needles made out of bone and carved they have these cool cables that seem to be plastic cables covered with a satin fabric. I had to have them. I knit a little with them but was trying a stittch that didn't work well with these needles. They felt like bamboo and didn't snag at all! They would be great with any yarn that is great with bamboo imho.
The owners of our local yarn shop have really bent backwards to accomodate our guild and they give us discounts and then extra discounts on guild meeting days and now are giving us a special 50% off on a selected type of yarn on guild meeting days. Who wouldn't take advantage of that! This time it was 50% off any yarn put up in bobbins. I'm no fool I went for Adrienne Vittadini's Celia, a lightweight silk ribbon in a corally orange. I already have a pattern picked out for it and spring is looming. The winter projects will soon be stored in favor of springy stuff. So it may come up sooner in line than I think:-)
My freind Kristine of Strung out blog fame(excuse my computer ignorance,http://www.strung-out.blogspot.com/) Gave me this gorgeous skeinlet that was making her allergies flare. It is a wool, alpaca,angora blend that she spun herself. Thanks Kristine!!
