Maybe you ladies can help me decide on my next project, here is some of my yarn. I want a pair of skrited longies, smss blomers, and overalls. Any of these colorways perfect for those projects...

8 oz TIHMILY


8 oz BA neverland


8oz CWC flamingo pond


8+oz ATTD Eden


8oz NT rainbird


I have more but these are the ones I'm wanting knit up soon, I'm leaning towards the Eden for overalls with owl buttons, but I also think it would look cute as a skirted longies...
I think TiHMILY wants to be overalls, the Eden wants to be skirted longies and Rainbird wants to be bloomers.... Neverland wants to be cardi.

Can anyone help me out with questions about handspun??

I'm looking at 7.8 oz light/worsted weight 2 ply bfl yarn for $80, is that about average?? Could I even use that base handspun with Jocelyn?? I want to try handspun so bad!! And this is gorgeous!

I actually bought the rainbird with bloomers in mind! And TIHMILY would look so cute as overalls!

That sounds about right... If you figure fiber costs about $15 - 18/braid and spinning costs $6 - $6.50/oz depending on the spinner... You're looking at an average range of $77 - $87.

So my fluffy mail yesterday was kind of disappointing. The Children's Place sleepers are huge!! I don't think DD would fit them until next year so I guess I'll have to return them and get them in 12 mo. What a bummer.

Ugh, have to get DD ready to go to a friend's so I can go run. Not too motivated today.

Oh, I've been meaning to ask...does anyone have SoftStar shoes for their LO? I think I'm going to get a pair that has sheepskin lining but wanted to see if anyone had any experience with them?

Re: Extra Fluffy Chat 10-6-10

Wanted to share some yarn I dyed the other night. DH thinks I should keep it to knit into a sweater for Ayden, but I really should stock my store...
