Extra

Want to know more about Mrs. Crosby? Take a look at an interview that Vogue Knitting just finished with her.




Blue Sky Alpacas has a new yarn called Extra. It has been ordered and should be here in a couple of weeks.
55% baby alpaca / 45% fine merino
A beautiful blend of baby alpaca and fine merino wool. Extra is light, lofty, and a delight to work with. Each generously sized hank calls out for new knitting adventures.
details
  • Weight: 150 grams
  • Approx: 218 yards/199 meters
  • Needle Size: 7-9 US / 4.5-5.5 mm
  • Gauge: 4-5 sts per inch
There are 14 colours and I have ordered them all. 11 will be coming now and 3 when Blue Sky Alpacas receives more stock.
The cowl patterns take 1 skein of yarn. I have a sample skein and am going to get a cowl knit in the next few evenings. The yarn in a skein feels wonderful. Can't wait to feel it knit up!
Someone started their needle felting last night
The pig is finished and now she is on to her fish. She did the pig in just over an hour and it was her first project. Now she is bugging me about when the shipment will be arriving.
Beth walked around the show in her hard hat and construction vest so that people knew who to talk to about the Quest. Josh Bennett was very jealous and needed to wear the hard hat. His plan was to have someone dress up as a motorcycle rider and another as a cowboy. They could join Beth and change YMCA to TNNA.
