YESSSSSSSS!!

It's back!:



Lion Brand has answered the call of knitters worldwide. This was (and now IS) one of my favorite yarns to knit. It's very easy to take care of, and I loved the choice of colors, which used to be a bunch of primary colors. Check out the new colors. I hope they intend to bring back the classic colors as well as these new ones. I'm really only digging the lime, charcoal, and terracotta. Oh, boy.

I always liked Cotton Ease--it's just like Rowan's All Seasons Cotton and at least half as expensive. I didn't know it was back! Thanks!

Still recovering from all the hair-based Elvis tributes on Monday! See you next month--I just heard from some women in Chattanooga who say they're road-tripping to Nashville for knitting at the library. Too funny!

I like the colors! Unfortuatnely, I must travel far to find Lion Brand Cotton, either Joann's or Hancock. Are you a dishcloth knitter?

Sarah,

I am not a dishcloth knitter...yet! I have a whole bunch of Sugar 'n Cream yarn (I think that's what it is anyway), intended for dishcloths, but I just haven't gotten there yet.

Do you live in town?? I'm super close to Joann's!! Also, do you ever go to the Stich 'n Bitches at Threaded Bliss (or anywhere else, I guess)?

Smiles,
Erin

Ann,

I can't believe they're coming all the way from Chattanooga...guess I'm just spoiled since the library is just a 2 minute walk from where I work. I'll have to ask them if Genuine Purl is worth the trip. ;)

Smiles,
Erin

I live in Berry Hill, sort of near 100 Oaks Mall. I'm not far from Threaded Bliss but haven't attended the SNB nights.
