you making me want to buy some more cestari lol
I know! But I can see why people wouldn't like it. I love the thick koosh of thick bases. I hate gb because it pills so bad. The tot longies I made g have been worn like 6 times and are so pilly! My mmr and targhee never does!

Fi, I think I figured you out on Spots, and I am sorry I clicked on it, cause there are lots my DS's size... may have to ruminate on this a bit

We just had dinner, with a background of music called "screaming toddler." He threw most of his salmon and rice off the high chair and both dogs were much obliged to clean it up for him.

I think it's my turn for bedtime tonight

Mine is dk twist as Madtosh calls it. Sw merino generally does fluff out when it blooms so I would guess its just natural? Sw treatments remove the scales that make it stick together but the yarn is still made of lots of hairs so unless its a really tight twist I wouldn't be surprised if ends pop out of the twist. Is it more than that?

Re: VETERANS DAY! KAL 11/11-11/17 Knit to a goal!

So far GB is my fav base to knit. I love iknititng it!

I do like MMW knit up, it is prob my fav of all the stiffer bases. Both my MMW and cestari shorties are tough as nails. that is a nice quality. when I held the kids alot though, the cestari was def very rough on my arms.
