Can't keep it in!

Firstly, please please please have a look at this new yarn from the Yarn Workshop. A prize of a skein of knitabulous' new Ultimate Sock yarn for the first commenter - whom I have not met in person - to correctly state why I am so excited about this.

Secondly, I am going to the WWKIP day at Darling Harbour on Saturday - which should be a wonderful afternoon of coffee, food and knitting frivolity. Then, I am staying in Sydney for the night with a wonderful friend, and on Sunday, Donna and I are personning the NSW Knitter's Guild Stall at the Quilt and Craft Fair.

I am just about to burst with anticipation of it all! I even bought new boots for the occasion.

Tomorrow is going to be the slowest day ever at work.

Great price and it is run by an Australian!

The obvious reason would be the name being yours. Is the 100% silk a bonus?

It is 100% silk and it named ailsa plus it is a whole 100g, it can also be dyed in what ever colour the buyer desires.

Ailsa has an amazing drape, and will make very elegant shawls and scarves.

I was going to say that it was a comment on your amazing drape, and elegant shawls and scarves ;)

Personally, I am loving the whole 1000m thing.

A blank canvas with your own name, very special indeed!

I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time at WWKIP - say hi to all the gals and guys from me!

Very cool. A luxurious silk yarn with your name on it.. can't think of anything yarnie that is better. I wonder what a "Celia" yarn would be...

Ann said...

Your own undyed silk yarn all ready to be dyed with your creative colors. I want one too!

"Ailsa has an amazing drape, and will make very elegant shawls and scarves."

I'd like to have that Amazing Drape description - it sounds languid and relaxed.
