Last Sneak Peek before I ship

I just wanted to pop back in to show off another sneak peek. This project you have seen here before while I was working up its design. Again, the circle theme. (Honestly, I had no idea I really was this into circles)

The yarn is Louet Euroflax. Now some of you hate this yarn. But to you all I say is, Have you washed it? See this yarn is linen. And yes, it is rough when you initially crochet with it. BUT Then... you wash it, AND dry it in your machine! Its like music to my ears. And when you are done, it becomes soft and silky, yet still has amazing stitch definition. Its really the perfect yarn for new moms. Babies can do their worst on the garment, and all mom has to do is toss it in the wash with all the other clothes. Best part is that every time you wash it it gets softer. Louet is so cool, they also make a wool/ linen blend that works the same way. With wool you get lighter garments that can keep you warmer.

Anyway, this is the last you'll hear from me, until I have everything all packed up and off to the publisher. Hope you all have a great weekend!

I've been wanting to try that yarn. I'm glad to hear someone giving it a thumb's up.

I went to your Fickr page and looked at all the photos - I am speechless! Everything is fabulous and I loved seeing how you organize your work. Hip Cat is currently in a state of disarray. How exciting to have everything done and ready to ship.
