Hey all, Mandy from Chicago checking in. I have my yarn sitting around here -- bought the Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud in Peppermint. I haven't taken a picture yet...sorry. Anyway, I picked it out before I even realized that it's the same thing that Melanie used, because I thought it would be perfect for cherry blossoms. Yay! It's sooooo soft and beautiful. I cannot wait!
Is there anyone from Chicago out there who is reading this and would like to get together to do this? I am thinking of starting a group -- meeting at the Starbucks at Clark and ? -- Balmoral I think -- in Andersonville. Alternatively, Kopi might be good. Anyway, thoughts would be appreciated and I'd love to get together with some of you!
If you're interested, email me: firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, you can post at my blog, though I'm not sure why you'd do that: http://allforthesakeofknitting.blogspot.com -- unless you're dying to learn about my European vacation and random yarn purchases while there. :)
