  • SALE!?! Kureyon!?! I love you so much right now…(sighs happily). THANK YOU for letting us know about this glorious sale!! Kureyon is my favorite yarn and I need to buy more of it for a knitting Project that’s been put on hold.
    Again, thanks for the info ^_^
    Take care.

  • That’s OK, Michelle, we live to serve.
    Kureyon is the best. I got a single ball of #91 just to swatch and watch it stripe in deep blues, grays and reds. In the Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton book there is a great kids’ hoodie in Kureyon #91. It’s interesting because it’s knit in both vertical and horizontal panels to really show off the Kureyon.
    Fate has not been kind to me with this wool allergy. Kureyon gets me a little itchy just knitting it, fuggedabout wearing it.
    Thanks to Emma (she says sarcastically!), I have discovered Noro’s Lily, which is a mixture of silk and cotton. It’s divine. Really silky and drapey. I’m making scarves in it for now but need to come up with a top pattern that will suit the yarn’s drapiness. Really luxurious and I’m finding it on sale for $9 a skein in the LYS right now. I like it as well as the Jaeger silk and it comes in a more vivid palette, not surprisingly. Cheerio from Kay

  • Oh goody ! I do so love to point a knitter in the direction of her yarn destiny :0]
    O.k. Mrs. Where’s the pictures – your public are starting to fidget,grumble & shuffle their feet.

  • I believe it’s in the by-laws of Mason-Dixon Knitting that we are solemnly bound to pass along knowledge of any yarn discounts/closeouts/outlets/mooching opportunities that are known to us.

  • Emma–There is going to be such a deluge of pix once my new computer arrives that y’all are going to be sick of looking at every little WIP dramatically draped on a hammock, or a rock, or in the sandbox. Scouting locations for tasteful portraits of knitting is a chore, isn’t it? No pix until Blogmaster 2003 arrives. Any day now, but probably not before I head for seaside ‘vacation’ with loads of kids. I just posted you one, by the way. Sort of a teaser. Log Cabin as a WIP getting its edging knitted on. I love that thing. Thanks though for the Lily recommendation. I can even persuade myself that it’s a bargain now that I’ve compared prices to Jaeger Silk. Cheers! Kay

  • Kay, Just throw the Blogmaster into the back of the Mom Bomb and blog your way through your family trip. (Crucial difference between “family trip” and “vacation,” you know: I’ve never been on an actual “vacation” that involved my children.)
