Gin. Knitting. Monkeys. What more could you ask for?!

Here's the yarn

This is the stuff that is giving me so much trouble. It doesn't *look* harsh, does it? And it is the most beautiful, deep teal color. But after reading your comments, I think Lady L is right; it will be nice for something more substantial (like a pouch or small purse), and will be easier to work with if I perhaps crochet rather than knit.

As for the other colors, tho, I think I may take Ellen's advice and return them. Doing the math, I can spend $25 on 4 balls of yarn I can't stand, or on 1 or 2 balls I *LOVE*. Life's too short to knit with ugly yarn, right?

I have a dentist appointment - stupid crown broke, and it's only a year old!!! Good thing I've had TWO root canals (stay with me - this is relevant). Good thing the dentist office is ACROSS THE STREET from Stitches!!!

I agree about the harsh yarn, knitting should be enjoyable!

BTW, your Topi variation is great! I'm putting together a gallery of my pattern designs and would love to include it if you'd like.

:) I had to look back to remember what the "topi" was - HOW COULD I FORGET?! Yeah, sure, knock yerself out! But be advised it will be refurbed when the cold weather comes, so the Monkey will wear it to school (i.e., flowers, pink ribbon, etc.)

And Ellen should know because that woman has yarn coming out of her ears!
