Woolies in a desert?

Counting down the days until I'm off to Vegas.  As much as I'm planning on Margaritas, gambling and eating enough to last me a month, I can't help wondering whether there's wool in the middle of a desert?  Although I'm not planning on travelling out of Vegas much, if there is something unmissable nearby then ofcourse I could be tempted.  If anyone knows of any stores in the area, I'd appreciate hearing about them.  How much wool can you get in a suitcase?!!!

A huge sigh of relief

After blindly stumbling through what seems like a million internet sites and following link aftre link (generally to not a lot) I find myself at menwhoknit.com  I suddenly feel like I've found home and it full of people as nuts about knitting as me.  I am hoping that my blog proves interesting reading as I develope skills and move onto things more adventurous than scarves.  Is there such a thing as a plain and simple jumper for the brave new knitter?

my circ needle

I just bought a circular needle to test knit with.  It is from Clover Takumi bamboo premium.  Its not the addi turbo i wanted but it was only $7.00.  vt_shua is right, just buy the Addi turbos in the sizes I use the most.  Ill take that advice.  I do have one big Question"  How in the world do you get the cable to relax, Its all coiled up.  I did try running it under hot water and it relaxed a little bit but not much.  Any way this has been an up and down day.  my artisan arrived,  my friend wants me to knit a poncho for her, thats why i bought the circ needle.  I was going to start the poncho tonight but it might take abit to relax the needle.
