They came! They came!!! Two shipments!!

Introducing the Lovely San Remo from Catherine Lowe. The yarn is enough for an ample sized sweater for my ample size these days and it all came in just six balls! That's just over and one half ball each part: front back and two sleeves. There's also enough here for a much larger swatch (think 12x12).

I'm so excited, I just hope my attention span can handle it!





Next we have the lovely Baby Alpaca from Elann. Two colors: Raspberry and Aubergine (a.k.a Eggplant, which I guess is a less marketable color than its identical French cousin)

This yarn is destined to become the Somewhat Cowl from Wendy Bernard at knitandtonic.com.

I'm a little concerned because the gauge is a little bit finer than the Blue Sky Alpaca Silk. That means more math! I just want to sit and follow a pattern to the recommended gauge. (sigh) I'm sure it will work out fine, I'm just a little disappointed and now concerned that I'm not going to have as much yarn as I'll need.

Send it back or keep it? What do you think? Sorry the pics are so dark, I'll take some fresh ones tomorrow or later tonight!

By the way, GROUP NIGHT is Tomorrow night and we'll be meeting at the Border's Cafe at Lake and Skokie Blvd. from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Hope to see you there!

Hooray for yarn! That's a bummer about the gauge...How big a difference? Hmmmm, maybe contact Elann and see if they have any more in that dye lot...Either way, I agree with Lynae that you should bring it to GROUP tonight:)

Hey Jen - I came home after class last night and read your blog. So sorry about the house, but it seems your yarn delivery helped you recover.

Enjoy reading your blog very much - even though I see you weekly at 3 Bags, I'll keep up with you through your site. /Anna Marie
