Isn't this yarn just wicked?
I just love it. A vortex of wintery bluster... It looks like frostbite, doesn't it?

This is the yarn I just bought yesterday at my LYS, Foliage from Berrocco. The color is called Nightshade. So fabulous. Actually, lil' b picked it out. He has fantastic taste. Although, he called it pink...

I'm making a pair of Fingerless Mitts for one of the girls I work with. And this yarn just begged for the job. How can you say no to a yarn like this?

Thank God I'm getting paid for this stuff. I could never afford the yarn tastes I'm developing otherwise.

So I have one sock on needles, one mitt on needles, and a blanket on the hook. Yikes. When am I going to find time to play with my kid?

Also, does anyone know of an acrylic in a fabulous chocolate color? I need a bunch of it, and butter yellow, for a pair of blankets.

Muahaha, that lys sure is addictive isn't it! FYI, I know you're a nonposter right now, but you may want to check out the sticky at the top of the board. Shouldn't be too big a deal as you can always sign up for a new account with a new email, but just a heads up. Not sure what's up with the whole deal, but that's a whole nother can of worms.

Yup, keeping mine, but I foresee a lot of name changes in the next week or so.

I've worked with Foliage before - made an adorable hoodie for my 8 yr old daughter in shades of purple. Unfortunately about a month later it wound up in the wrong pile of laundry and is now about right for a 2 yr old :( It's fun to watch the colors knit up.

I have a bunch of that in a red/cinnamon colorway. I LOVE it! :)

Ok the more I look at this yarn the more I love it - is it soft?
