Soy Enferma!

What? More yarn?
1. It was on sale.
2. Deepa talked me into it.

(very bad pictures. Blame 5 days of stomach flu!)
Above is Wool/Silk from Mystical Creations Yarn. The yarn is a pleasantly rustic thick/thin shiny, glossy mass. It's described as 'bulky'-- although the thin portions have pushed me toward a #8 needle. The "Cherry Gloss" colorway above is truly different than MCY's website! It's well worth the price-- although here's fair warning-- TAKE HEED when ordering from these folks. From this experience, I can attest that the photos on their site are stock-- and do not reflect their currently dyed skeins. I'm really happy with the colors. It's not what I expected, but quite pretty. (Tiger and Raspberry Jam?)
I'm sure you all know what project it is. Let's hear it, "Oh. Last year's project, huh? You know, everyone's moved onto Lady Eleanor by now".

Toby and Paco don't care, but area starting to wonder when the new afghan will be complete.

Deepa's looks gorgeous knit up. But repeat after me- Must finish Lizard Ridge first, no one-night stands with other projects!

I just love those two bon chiens of yours. They're so darn photogenic.

Hope you're back to 100% soon.

Deepa has good taste. I don't blame her for being unrepentant. I'm starting to wonder when the blanket is going to be done as well.

I can attest to the value of the MCY yarns - I love my socks. I have to warn you though - when you block - you may want to rinse the yarn with some vinegar to help set the color. My first pair of socks from their yarn have turned my shoes purple!
