I found a new yarn vendor of whom I want to sing the praises: Yarn Pirate. I bought this:
Aint she pretty?
I found her through links on http://www.oneplanetyarnandfiber.com/, a cool site devoted to smallish yarnists. And I love anybody who's a pirate, even though the jolly roger is OVAH (too bad, too; it was fun). I like people who dye their small lots of yarn. Although, she has a yarn o' the month club (called Booty Club, heh) which is full up, so maybe her lots of yarn aint that small, at that. Anyway, she's no Rowan Yarns yet. I like to support the small.
I believe I will use this yarn in a purse, or handbag for those of you who, like me, dislike the word "purse" (it makes me think of pursed lips, reminds me of Church Ladies).
