Yum.

Recent stash additions include (clockwise from left) Lorna's Laces Shepherd sock yarn in Clay, Lorna's Laces Swirl DK in Douglas Fir, Fortissima Color Socka Color in German, and Blue Sky Alpacas 100% Alpaca Sport Weight in Color 47 - a delectable green. All are dedicated to socks!

A couple came from my LYS and a couple from www.littleknits.com, a super site with lovely wares and supreme service.

Figure the Lorna's DK or Blue Sky will work for Sock Wars. Will be checking my gauge tonight. Emailed yarnmonkey to suggest that SockWars have a gift for the first person to be assassinated and offered to donate some sock yarn to the cause. We'll see what she says.

Was recently inspired by Echoes of a Dream and her dishcloth obsession. I, too, adore handknit washcloths. Been making them from standard cotton for some time... but then "got to thinkin."

Is it total insanity to make one of cotton chenille? Determined that it's only partial insanity which, quite simply, is no obstacle for me :-)

Anyone ever done this? Thoughts?

Perhaps not dishcloths (a bit *to* nice IYKWIM) - but it would make a gorgeous washer for in the bath/shower. Nice and soft on the skin! :)

Soory I haven't got back to you about doing a sweet swap. I'd love too. I'll email you in a day or so when I have 2 minutes and we can finalise the details - Love Julia x
