So I decided to use the Snowbunny Scoutswag yarn. But what pattern to use? I thought of Hedera, but then changed my mind. Then I thought of “Monkey Socks” and started with that. I had to alter the pattern a bit because it was too small. I knitted a good 3 inches before I decided that I didn’t like the way the colors were pooling and it totally hid the design. So I took a picture (not very good one) and frogged it. I finally decided on Crusoe from Knitty.com. I knitted about 2.5 inches and so far so good. I don’t think I anticipated having too much white in it. I thought it would be more blue/brown. I have to say though, I like the yarn, it’s very soft. When I look at it, it reminds me of neopolitan (sp?) ice cream. Even though it’s blue and not pink. I wonder how this yarn will wear. I think it will wear out sooner than my Lorna’s Laces and Wollmeise yarn, but we’ll see.
For some odd reason, Michael calls the Wollmeise “Weissmies”, I think because that’s how he read it the first time. Even though I correct him a billion times, he still says it wrong.
I also joined two knitting lists, one in German and one in English. The German one is good and bad. Good because I’m practicing German – I even sent a post and got some really nice responses, but bad because I get 200+ emails a day from them and have to sort though my mail. But, I asked about the handarbeit fair in Cologne and someone responded and said it’s only for retailers. Thank goodness I asked! Otherwise I would’ve gone to Cologne for nothing.

Ah…you frogged it. (@@) I personally don’t really like Crusoe but I think that it would go well with the yarn. :-)
