Yarn goodness

My alpaca/angora yarn...isn't it pretty? You really can't tell how soft it is with my poor photographic abilities. But trust me...it's soooooo soft.




And a BIG THANK YOU to my secret pal! A fabulous package was waiting for me when I got home from my crappy day at work today. I love it! I can't wait to sit down and get to learning to knit. And soft yummy purple yarn...my favorite color...thank you! (And thank you for the virtual hugs...I appreciate it)

Does that say 'Stitch and Bitch'?? What does that *mean*?? LOL:)

ROFL I was going to ask the same thing! I'm not too crafty, so maybe 'pitch' is a term?
Either way, lovely yarn! :-)

Stitch N' Bitch is one of my all time favorite books on knitting! Hope you find it as engaging and helpful as I did when re-learning to knit.

The patterns in it rock too... very different. The second book Stitch N' Bitch Nation is equally as good.

*swoon* on the Alpaca.

If you want a good site for knitting patterns (all free) www.knitty.com is really great.

I'll dish knitting w/ you anytime too!

Jill - Stitch n' Bitch refers to knitting circles. A bunch of folks get together and knit and chat. or ... er... bitch. ;)

Is there angora also in the alpaca? How much?

I should post a pic of Chloe in her coming home sweater -- silk & angora, took me hours to make ;)

lol...Stitch 'n Bitch...groups of women (some men too) get together and stitch and bitch. :o)

It's 80% alpaca, 20% angora.

Pictures of work are ALWAYS welcome. (hint)
