Pictures Still nothing from you, Gerlinde. Are you getting any error messages about the file you`re attaching being bigger than 50KB in size?

yarn substitution - Peruvian Collection The drape of wool would be much different. New stock of all colors of alpaca should be here by January, so I`d advise you to wait!

EVILann, indeed! <Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran back!> Bea, the hemlock is the color we have least of -- only 40 balls, so to avoid disappointment, be on your mouse right at 6:00am Pacific Time.

Knots in Highland Wool? Hello Joyce,
We`ve found Highland Wool to be of superb quality, and there are many other posts to attest to this. This month, however, Gerlinde posted a note about knots, and Bets emailed me privately to say that she had found a few as well. I`ve contacted our supplier, sending scans from Bets, and I hope to hear back from them soon as to why these uncharacteristic knots have surfaced for a few people. I`ll be sure to post here when I receive their reply.

Ann question on Thursdays yarn I haven`t swatched Skylab, Libby, but there are 4 designs for Skylab in Inspiration 70 that show the yarn knit up. I can tell you that it is very soft. The boucle thread that is plied with the single-ply wool blend has a sheen, which makes a nice contrast with the matte wool blend.

Dec. Newsletter - Question about the "suggested" patterns for Baby Silk Both are fingering weight patterns for using the yarn single-stranded, Ghislaine. I would recommend worsted weight patterns, if you would prefer to use the yarn double-stranded.

Ann, you ROCK!!! :-)

Baby Silk - Any reason why it can`t be knit doubled? No reason whatsoever, Donna! Knit 2 strands together, it works beautifully for worsted weight (20 st/4") patterns. Just be sure to double the yardage called for in your worsted weight pattern, to allow for knitting the Baby Silk 2 strands together.

My Christmas Scarf from DH Patricia, there`s a cable pattern in my _mon tricot Knitting Encyclopia: 1500 Patterns_, which when turned upside down looks a bit like the wheat pattern in your scarf. It`s called "Crowned Cables". It has more purl stitches surrounding the cable pattern than your scarf does, but I think you might be able to adapt it to make a copy of your Christmas scarf:
Multiple of 14 + 5 + selv.
Row1: *P5, k9*, p5.
Row2 and alt. rows: K the p sts and p the k sts of previous row.
Row 3: *P5, slip 2 sts onto a cn and hold at front of work, k next 2 sts, then k the 2 sts from cn, k1, slip 2 sts onto a cn and hold at back of work, k next 2 sts, then k the 2 sts from cn*, p5.
Row 5: Rep. from row 1.

Me too - happy holidays to folks at elann Thanks very much for your good wishes. I don`t know why it evolved so, but yes, Boxing Day is Canada`s biggest shopping day of the year. I`ve heard that the day after Thanksgiving in the US is the biggest shopping day - is that true?

The peek is up! Have you seen the free patterns for it, Bets? I thought of DD right away when I saw the Cubetto top pattern!

Peruvian Collection Have you started your `knock-off` scarf yet? If so, let me guess - you`re using Baby Cashmere, right?

Peruvian Collection I`m really sorry to hear about your dogs, Patricia, and sorry to hear that you`ll be alone again for a while too. Sounds like organizing your stash and starting on a new project will do your soul good.

HW Chunky You`re right, Fran, that Highland Chunky is much finer in gauge than Naturgarn. Naturgarn knits at 13 st/4", while Highland Chunky knits 15 st/4". I`d classify Naturgarn as "bulky" weight (12-14 st/4"), and Highland Chunky as "chunky" weight (15-16 st/4"). I think of "worsted" weight as 19-20 st/4", and "heavy worsted/aran" as 17-18 st/4". How many stitches per inch was your Highland Chunky swatch? I ask because sometimes I fear that names like "worsted", "chunky", and "bulky" mean different things to different knitters -- especially from country to country!
