Since I like how the garter stitch background of the Sampler Stole worked out, I started Birch in the garter stitch version. After 4 pattern repeats, I finally decided that garter stitch just didn't make the pattern 'pop'. So I frogged and started again. Therefore, now I can tell you that Feza Kid Mohair is a lot easier to frog than Rowan KSH. :)
Which one of these two do you like better?
This is a serious problem ... I think if I want to get anything else done, I had better stop casting on for socks! LOL!

Can you believe it? I am on the 59th day of my Yarn Focus Challenge already! Almost 2 months ... just buying yarns on one day each month ... and I actually don't really lack yarns to work on my projects! I have been knitting socks non-stop and there isn't even a significant dent in my sock yarn stash! So what does that say?

I can't understand how Husband can manage to finish reading Da Vinci Code and the paperback is still looking as if it were just bought from the bookstore! He took a look at the copy of Deception Point I just finished and asked if it was a library copy ... and it is NOT! :x
