Blogger is being really weird today! Thanks for the comments on Wicked. The yarn is 100% cotton that I got on eBay for a song. I have no idea what the yardage is per ball, but I have used just over two and I still have almost 4 left. I am pretty sure I will have enough for the short sleeve which is what I planned on making. I just don't know if I will add the pocket yet.

OMGosh another knitter allergic to wool!! So glad to find you (well, thank you KTE!) Most animal fibers make me itch like crazy so I don't even bother

I wanted to comment on the "Le Slouche" but for some reason there is no comment section. I can't wait for the 'Treat Exchange'. I love berets too! Looking forward to seeing the finished product and doing some yarn shopping on Saturday! I know, I know I'm a very weird silly lady!
