I received a package from Jacqui all the way from Australia with my Red Letter Day prize. I am stoked - this stuff (2 skeins of rare essentials "cocoon cherry" alpaca/silk/mohair and superfine merino and 1 skein of Jo Sharp's aran cotton in "Mareschino") is incredible. You guys have the best reds Down Under. It is NICE STUFF! Thank you so much! I think I've finally settled on Cinxia from for my red sweater project. I've mooned over the Elsebeth Lavold vest but now that I've looked at the pattern I think I will work my way up towards it. I've ordered some of her wool/silk yarn in a lovely red (rosehip - what a great colorway name) that I think will be perfect. It didn't hurt to notice that The Yarn and Fiber company that I bought it from on-line is selling it for a dollar less per skein than a local yarn store and with free shipping.

I have yet to post my button (feel free to steal minus bandwidth of course, if you like). I could only get it really, really tiny or HUGE. With the holidays I have had no time for poking at it hoping things will work "this time". Soon, soon. I also have to figure out the blogger upgrade. Sigh.
