got the yarn... found the pattern

remember WAY back in the beggining of Jan when I won 3 different yarns from eBay??
well 2 came right away... and the third took a holiday at customs, then went back to Kentucky, and after it was reboxed and with new labels it finally made it to my place!!
I finally got the whisper yarn!! 11 skeins of it... enough for a sweater for moi!!
I'm going to make Banff.
I'm also going to take a try at dyeing my own sock yarn...
I just ordered some yarn from
they have awsome deals, even when you have to ship it up here....
you should check it out!!
Kate, I sent your package today!!
keep your fingers crossed that it gets to you this time!!
I have knit another inch on the backroads... must work on it faster!!
my left foot is getting cold... lol...

Oooooooooooh you mailed it to me? I so cant wait to get it! Did you read on my blog I got the costs of yours? Will mail it next week I promise! How long will yours take to get to me?
That Banff pattern looks great! Bet it will knit up well and look good on you.
I gotta get me some really nice sock yarn that I can dye. Though sockyarn has acrylic in it! Or the stuff I use does to make it keep its shape. mostly pure wool though!

Hey Kate....they never said how long it would take... but here is was a extra $12 for airmail so I just took the regular.
I'm thinking of going to the city today to get the needles for it.. we'll see tho... I'm going to visit Nancy today... and might twist her arm to go...it's only about 45 mins from her place.
the sock yarn that I bought is 100% superwash wool... I'm hoping that it will dye well.

Sounds like the one you picked will take 3 weeks plus to get to me.

Next time you talk to Nancy you say HI to her for me ok?
