So i figured out why i spend so much money on yarn.

Beacuse i love th egood stuff. i know this may not be a huge surprise to some people but i have discovered Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk. I am hooked. And not with a crochet hook.

It all started when i purchased a few skeins for my best knitting lady, Mary, or as all of Long Island knows her, Maeh. It was deep berry purple and soft as anything that i had ever felt. 66yards though? Come on Debbie, help a brother out.

Instead o got more skeins. I figured she could whip it into a fabulous capelet or something. That she did. She bought more to finish it but when i look at it, i want to cry. The drape of the fabric is out of control and the lace stitch she created was flawless. Closures? Yes there little hooye eye type victorian clasps. i know you all want to see this. So maybe a photo can come soon. But serisouly, i am now addicted to Debnie's alpaca silk.

I bought some of Ms. Bliss'

I bought some of Ms. Bliss' Cashmerino Aran for some piano gloves for a friend. And while I've not yet had to the time to start knitting... it is one nice yarn.
