I can't find the stupid camera anywhere, so I can't show you a picture of what I got, but I'll try my best to describe. First, a nice utilitarian ball of Sirdar Snuggly. It's acrylic & nylon, which I didn't realize when I picked it up, but it's very nice and soft (and machine washable and dryable). Not your typical nasty acrylic. Next, a nice little hank of Classic Elite Premiere. This is a luscious cotton/tencel blend that is ridiculously soft. It will be interesting to see how this compares to the Blue Sky Alpacas cotton. Then I snagged a skein of Brown Sheep Wildfoote. It's a little rough in the skein, but I bet it will wash up great (like Knit Picks Essential). Then a ball of Filatura Di Crossa Zarina merino which caught my eye because of its very cool texture, which I can't really figure out how to describe. It's kind of springy and spiraly. And a ball of Tahki Willow, 66% linen & 34% cotton, and SWTC Phoenix, 100% soy silk ribbon.
The last two balls are my very favorite. The first is Crystal Palace Kid Merino which is a lace-weight mohair blend. It's a great colorway with rich reds, pinks and greens. Finally, I splurged on an $18 ball of Anny Blatt angora. I can't imagine being able to afford an entire sweater of that stuff, but it sure is luxurious. It is sooooo soft, I want to just carry my little swatch around with me and rub my cheek with it. This is the first ball I cracked into when I got home. I really like yarn!
