Lookie lookie!

Look what came in the mail!

It's taking every fiber of my being not to cast on. When I picked up the package I was slightly scared by the lack of weight and size. It's 12 balls at 186yds each. That's 2232 yds. The Koigu skirt in the new Vogue Knitting claims to only need about 1300 yds, so by comparision I should have enough for my dress.

I stopped into Great Yarns today and had the pleasure of seeing Gray LaGran's Noro Butterfly sweater. It's a really cute sweater. I may have to re-evaluate my dislike of Noro yarns. She put the sweater in some wool wash it is a lot softer than in it's original state. I would still have to get over the high price though.
