My first order from WEBS came yesterday. I have to say, I’m going to like this store. A LOT.

I originally went there because they had ArtYarns Supermerino for a decent price – and with their discount program (the more you buy the less you pay) it was a great place to shop for Supermerino.

Lauren, that’s your three on the top!

I actually bought more of the Supermerino – I’m making cardigans for my best friend’s girls – not for a while though – but it was backordered. WEBS was very nice about it. I will definitely do business there again.

While I was perusing the shelves, so to speak, I came across some Jo Sharp Desert Garden on Clearance. So I bought two bags.

Color: Dandelion #238

I immediately swatched the yarn because it seemed so similar to Calmer. It’s springy like Calmer, not as much, but nowhere near as soft. It reminds me of All Season’s Cotton too. The yarn has that tube like appearance. It knit up nice though – I used size #7s.

The problem with this is yarn, though, is that it made me think of Calmer, and then I couldn’t STOP thinking about it and I ended up buying 12 balls of it from Janette. In the chocolate brown color. I kind of regretted it the moment I did it, but I figure it’s Calmer, right? Can’t go wrong there. (I’ll probably end up with more because I want a lighter color. Oy.) At least, I think I got a good price on it.

I barely knit yesterday. I needed the break.

Two things before I go: Happy Birthday Cassie! Cassie has the unique distinction of being the first blogger I met in real life since I started blogging! I owe you a cup, my friend!

And, I love this blog (of sorts).


  1. The Artyarns looks scrumptious. I don’t think one can go wrong with Calmer. And it’s easy to trade or sell if you decide you don’t like the color. The Desert Garden looks nice (I’m a big cotton/acrylic blend fan), but heavier than ASC (60 yds/ 50 g vs 98 yds / 50 g).

  2. That comic blog is great. Thanks.
    That Jo Sharp color is beautiful, and I know what you mean about Calmer. Can’t seem to pull the trigger on a purchase just yet.

  3. Ooooh, I’m drooling over that ArtYarns Supermerino! I have yet to try it, and the more I hear about it, the more tempted I am….love the colors you chose!

  4. I love that Dandelion color~ so spring-y. What are you going to use it for? A stockinette cardi? 😉

  5. That Jo Sharp looks amazing all knit up. I am very tempted… gosh, I have too much yarn already! Love the Merino too–the other Lauren is a lucky girl! 🙂
    Hope all is well, Cara!

  6. I like WEBS too. If you are a fan of bamboo circular needles, they sell some that I’ve never seen anywhere else. They are, to me, the ultimate combination of all that is good in both Clover and Crystal Palace. Good points, and the cables are not too kinky!
    Have fun with the new yarn.

  7. Oh, I LOVE the Dandelion color! Yummmmm.

  8. never tried WEBS, and it sounds like i should… love the comics blog link!

  9. Have a wonderful time on your visit to Boston – I only wish I could have joined you guys! I’m sure Mrs. Bookish will make sure you hit all the must see LYSs.

  10. Ooh, ooh, very pretty supermerino. And did you say calmer? Wait, I have to wipe the drool off my face. Looooove calmer in any color. Yummy, yummy.
