Guess what I got??!...14 balls of Austermann's Candy!! I just love this stuff! I've used it before on a hat and it's the softest, most lovely yarn. It feels like polar fleece!!
But, the reason why I'm so excited is because: 1) I was checking out all these different yarn suitable for Rogue. To get enough of a quality yarn, it was going to cost close to $100. 2) When I bought my chocolate brown ball for my hat, it cost me $8.99. 3) Today, the label on the ball said $1.99. I was very excited. That meant it was only going to cost AUD$28. 4) Once I dragged it all to the counter, the woman scanned it and said "Oh, it's only $1.49 a ball!"..YAY! That means that it only cost me $20 for enough good quality yarn to knit Rogue!
Here's a good shot (from Elann) of the texture.
Now, the yarn is 100% Nylon Microfibre...And I'm not tooo sure about how it' going to sit with the cables of Rogue...So, I'm going to have a bit of a swatching session.
Surely you non-knitters *cough*Max*cough* can understand the coolness of getting something that was going to cost $100 for only $20?
Alright..I think I'll leave now. I don't know if I'll post again soon, so just incase I don't before New Years...I hope everyone has a
Happy New Years!
Edited:oh My God! You have to check this out! (Maybe not if you get offended easily..)
