Louet Love

Though I have yet to try Louet Euroflax in an actual project, I'm drawn in by the words and recommendations of others. In the spirit of virtual shopping therapy, I went on a trek to see where I could get some for a good price. This is what I found. Yeah-eah.

Now, if you've contemplated the nightie in Mason-Dixon knitting, and you're a size 14 pant and DD bust like me, you're looking at about five of those lovely 100g skeins. With shipping from a typical place, that's a Ben Franklin and an Andrew Jackson without breaking a sweat. I can spend that on shoes no problem, but I'd rather not on a single garment.

But finding Chez C in Florida has made that fantasy nightie a bit closer to real. To wit, if you buy two 1/2 pound cones rather than five skeins, and with the complimentary shipping over $25 (love free shipping, love it, love it, love it), Louet becomes a splurge instead of my child's college fund. Shiny.

Hi Mel,

Thank you for visiting my blog. The colorway on the socks is Lorna's Laces "Georgetown." The nighty sounds great! Good luck with it! :)
