Yarn

I finally got my yarn yesterday! I had a small problem at first, since I didn't have a ball winder and thought that the store clerk had done it before sending them to me (I'm not sure why I assumed she just would, I didn't ask and I should have). So I got my husband to help, and eventually I got the off-colour for the pattern into a ball to knit my geeky thing.

The yarn, Blue Sky Alpacas Dyed Cotton, is great. I get a fuzzy to pull off every once in a while, but it was great to knit with otherwise. Now I have a decent-sized geeky thing, and no time to measure, wash, and take pictures of this morning. Tonight, though, there will be pictures.

I did the swatch on my new Denise Interchangeables, which were great to work with. I usually prefer bamboo needles, and was surprised at how nice the plastic needles were.

I love Blue Sky Alcapa Cotton and love the irony of it too ;-) I have some organic sage. It is sooo soft...

I'm looking forward to seeing your geeky things as well. I used the Organic Cotton on Tomato, and when I wound my hanks, I did find some particularly large slubs on a couple of them that I had to cut out and shorten the ball. I still had plenty to finish the pattern, though. I'm curious if you'll find the same thing with the Dyed Cotton.

I just got my Dyed Cotton, too, in Carribbean (a turquoise-y color)... still need a geeky thing, but after I finish my current sweater (Tubey). Let us know how yours holds up! :)
