Thank you!

Morning Ladies! I'm tired too. I shouldn't be. I went to bed at a decent time (around 10:30) and Ayden slept well so I should be better than I am.

I do have pics to share. Some of you may have already seen these....

Cestari, MMW, BBR, Knit Picks bulky WotA...you could go with acrylic if you really wanted to but I hate knitting with acrylic, personally.
Thanks, I have all of those except Knit picks. I wasn't sure how much roughness they could take
How is the Knit picks regular worsted weight? Not for him but in general how does it knit up. I need to get some solids for a few hats and I want to try twisty trousers but I can't find a coop anywhere for solids

I don't like the worsted WotA very much for longies. It's thin and fuzzy and in my experience felts way too easily.

You could try some Cascade--WEBS and Jimmy Beans have good prices on it and I find that it's a lot more durable than the KP worsted.

I love the longies and the new colorway Shelly! I'd love to see that knit up.

Oh and speaking of the weather, I had to make an emergency run to target yesterday to get fall clothes for DS. I was very unprepared for the cooler weather!

If you do cascade do the 128. I think the 220 is too thin, the 128 seems closer to BBR, MMW, Cestari etc.
