Got Gauge?

Although this is a beautiful yarn, unfortunately I can't seem to get gauge for my project.


I'm starting to think that this wasn't a good substitute for this at all. Will have to make a trip back to my BC LYS.

In other news, things might start looking different around here. That's because I got a new camera! It's a very belated bday gift and so far I love my Nikon D40!

Would Silky Wool be a good sub? Seems like the fiber content is similar.

Oh Bummer! Shame you can't get the gauge you need with this lovely yarn. Hope a trip back to your LYS will solve the prob. I'm sure you'll find another use for your baby Llama :)
Can't wait to see some pics with your new camera.

The minute I saw that photo I suspected! Have a great time with your new toy!

I was thinking the same thing as Kirsten. Did you do any post processing to that pic? It's beautiful!

Ohhhh, I hate when that happens!

Congrats on the new camera! I was admiring the swatch photo- looks like you already got the hang of it;) I've been borrowing my bf's d40 from time to time, and it's the best!

There's a Flickr group for D40 lovers you know...? ;)

The swatch looks lovely. It looks like nice yarn.

Good on you about the camera. I am shopping on a new one and have pretty much settled on the new Canon Xsi that is coming out in a few days...I will have to wait two more weeks to get it, but I am sure it will be worth it.
