Some yarn porn

To make up for my last really-long-and-completely-devoid-of-pictures post...

Cascade Fixation. I have 10 balls of this, because it's on sale at Little Knits. There are only 2 colors available (this color, and an orange-yellow-pink combo that I came close to buying as well), but if you like either color, full bags are $29.75 + shipping...

Some Lorna's Laces, Miata colorway, maybe?

Last night, I put my Simple Knitted Bodice on to waste yarn so I could try it on to make sure the fit is ok. Wow, it takes a little while to transfer 250 stitches on to waste yarn and then back on to needles... however, it looks like everything is where it should be, so we're on to the main body knitting. Another couple of rows before the fronts get joined, and then it'll be bead stringing time.

What pretty yarn, especially the Lorna Laces yarn. Lucky you.

I am so glad you like all of the yarn - nearly everything you got was from my stash! :) The Lorna's Laces is something like "Wicker Park" or something "Park"... it may be discontinued by now, I got it nearly two years ago. Sorry I did not have the label!
