No sleep for me

It is 3:50 am and I am so not sleeping tonight, so here I am posting and surfing the net. I have been trying to find some absolutely gorgeous silk/wool yarn I read about in someone's blog this week. They were talking about making Clapotis from knitty and gave a link to a yarn shop that had the most beautiful yarn. I thought I book marked it, but I can't find the link. I left a comment about getting some for my birthday - If anyone knows what I am talking about - please drop me a note. I think it was something like $47 for 500 yds and $95 for 1000. I would really love to find it again.

On another note - of the 2 RAOK's I sent last week - it seems only one has arrived. The other one I sent to someone in California. I mailed it out last Wed. I would think it should have gotten there by now. It was a large envelope and went first class mail. I hope it isn't lost - I have no way of tracking it.

I mailed out 3 more pkgs today - one was for a upcoming birthday and 2 were just for fun. I am enjoying trying to pick out things for people I don't really know.

I finished the second mitten tonight - they are really cute - I plan to make another pair out of some other yarn I have in my stash, but I am going to try a smaller needle - I tend to knit loosely and this pair is a little big.

I am going to try to get some sleep now - thank the Goddess I don't have to go to work tmrw.

I don't know about the post you are talking about but

Is very very soft silky feeling wool. It is the softest nicest wool I have ever felt. I have not yet knit with it as I just got my order in the mail yesterday but it is so soft. I ordered Kettle Dyed Merino Wool Worsted in Pagoda.

Yes their yarn is beautiful - I have ordered from them before, but they are not the link I was looking for, this yarn is silk wool mix and is just stunning! When I find it I will post the link
