Addiction Additions

I haven't yet ordered that scarf kit from Habu. However, I did stock up on a bit of Lorna's Laces from Angelika's Yarn Store. I'm working on a project now that uses Lion and Lamb (no, not another clapotis) and I was afraid I'd run short. I've ordered from Angelika's before, and they have an excellent stock of LL yarn, and they ship quickly. I also signed up for the Kureyon Club at Yarniverse. They send you a single skein of a new color of Kureyon every 5 weeks or so for 8.95 including shipping. The general idea is to enable a Lizard Ridge throw, which looks like fun. They also include a pattern with each package. I was impressed with them. I placed my order on Wednesday, and had my Noro by Saturday (they're in Memphis and I'm in California). I know I don't need more Noro, but....

Meantime, I'm working away with my my Lion & Lamb, which I think is the most absolutely scrumptious yarn in the world to knit with. I enjoy every bit as it passes through my fingers.

On a totally unrelated note, I'm involved in several swaps right now. I have several going through Gimme Your Stuff, which is tons of fun (in various stages, I'm swapping with people in Singapore, Thailand, Australia, England, Romania, and the Netherlands--my swap with Germany's complete). And, after having had great pals in the One Skein Swap and the Whose Lace Is It Anyway Swap, I'm now in the midst of the International Tote Exchange II and the International Scarf Exchange. I've already sent my packages out. And my scarf pal, who's busy world traveling (with my scarf!), has sent me postcards from Zurich and Mozambique! How cool is that? I now have cards from all the continents except Antarctica (not holding my breath on that one, either). I've also signed up for Secret Pal 9.

Seems like Antarctica is a place where one could really use a scarf.

The Kureyon club sounds intresting. I'll have to go check it out.

I think you're right, Peg. Of course, you would know all about when scarves are needed!

And yes, Kelly, I am an enabler. :-)
