Amy- You *might* be able to, it will be cutting it close... but depending on your gauge you might. I get 4spi on cestari with 8s and Ive done 18-24mo before a only used 2 plus trim. Bc the gauge for that pattern is 5spi, so with 4spi I had to size down to the 0-3 or 3-6 i forget... But I used the trim for all the seedstitch, and then the pocket. And really the 2-3 isnt TOO much bigger than the 18-24mo.

I dont believe you
OK, thanks! I just have 2 skeins of choco rainbow here, and we don't use longies too much anymore so I was thinking what else to do with it.

Cool hat!

Erica--I must have missed some stuff, but sounds like you are supposed to be resting maybe? Still, can't wait to see what you dyed up.

Here's my dd's (12) first usable skein of spindle spun yarn. She had the first predictable thick/thin mess of a spindle full, and then went to town on the good stuff. This is 3 ply, 100% merino. I'm guessing a dk weight (haven't done wpi or a gauge swatch yet). She wants to dye it and use it to knit her little sis some mittens. It's about 2.5 oz and about 145 yards.

Very cool!

They were going through a divorce and the kids had spent the night with their dad and he left them there sometime in the night and went to the mom's house and broke in and killed them both.
How horrible! Do you live in Utah? I just heard this story and wondered if it was them:
If not its eerily similar.

huge Tina, and how frustrating to walk away with no answers

DH and I had a heated convo about NB cding....he said he didn't want to mess with NB poo where he can just throw a sposie away....what the hell is the difference? You put it in the diaper champ ooooooooor in the wetbag...same thing except you either walk to the west end or the east end of the house. REALLY?! Too bad, he has 4.5 mos to come to his senses.....And he was ok with cloth wipes a couple weeks ago now he isn't...How is it NOT easier? I'd used reg wipes OUT, but for home, it is easier b/c you can stick it in the wetbag with the dipe instead of separating and throwing the wipe away! MEN!!!!!! Too bad Jackaroo.....

Gotta get up at 5:30am...going to BED, it is almost 1am!
My dh is that way too, he doesn't do CDs, so he does sposies and I do CDs
