The Mean Mom

Just ask my 7 year old, he'll tell you. Don't believe him? Ask my 14 year old, if she still leaves you in doubt, my 17 year old can confirm it too.

I got brave...

See that new button over there... the one for the Wheat Ear Cable KAL? Yeah, I joined... now I just need to go buy yarn. Oh, and to check my needle supply and make sure that the right sizes are available and don't have one of my million UFO's on them. If I make this, actually, WHEN I make this, it will be the first project I have done that wasn't a square. I've made washcloths, and a few afghan squares... Oh, I did make Kyle a snake scarf that turned out nice enough that my nephew requested one.

I'm hoping that I'll have decided on a yarn and will have pictures soon...

Anyone have a good yarn recommendation that isn't going to take me broke? :)

    Oooh, sounds like fun! And for good yarn for little $, it's Knitpicks all the way.

    I like Knitpicks and Elann.com, too. And WEBS (yarn.com) runs some good sales, too.

    Oh, I clicked the KAL link and saw your post there. The Elann Peruvian highland wool is a nice solid wool, but it is not soft. It's actually kind of scratchy. I think it's scratchier than Knitpicks Wool of the Andes (which is very similar.) I've never used the alpaca yarn you asked about, but I know alpaca is very soft and very warm.
