Went to Smiley's today to get the rest of the yarn for Marilyn poncho and found the most wonderful yarn - Filatura Lanarota Puno 100% ALPACA it is soooooo soft and silky - 90m for $3.99 wow. I bought 2 skeins in a heathery brown to make gloves of some sort. Can't wait to cast this on to my needles. It comes in lovely colors too.
I went to Samurai too, found size 12 bamboo needles, bought a few pair, so they will probably turn up in some future RAOK's. I started a scarf to match the mittlets I made and they feel very nice and smooth.
