Here are some pictures of the goodies I got at Knitch in Atlanta. Their customer service was great, they had a basket of toys and didn't bat an eye at Robby scooting all over the place polishing the floor with his drool. Since I have such a great LYS, I just bought stuff I haven't found there. I got this book,two skeins of Malabrigo,3 skeins of Cascade 220,and I can't find the 4th skein I bought of the Cascade 220 in a reddish purple. The Malabrigo is for the Baby Surprise Jacket, I've been inspired by Adrian's BSJ. I'm going to make the biggest size so Robby will fit into it this winter. Talk about soft, I've heard alot about Malabrigo on the blogs, it's a single ply and will probably pill quite a bit, but I don't care, it will make a beautiful jacket for The Turd, and did I mention it was soft? The Cascade is for a felted vest I want to make for my Aunt, inspired by this. I'll have to buy a copy of Felted Knits. Does anyone have this book? What do you think of it? Are their other good patterns besides the vest? The EZ book is awesome, I love how she writes, very inspiring, and I'm watching Jared and Adrian's progress on their Tomten's because I want to knit one for Rob one of these days.
