Lalalala Lhasa!!

This might be a long gushing post, so if you are a "cut to the chase type" click here to see what I'm talking about! So, we got some yarn this week. It wasn't just any yarn, it wasn't even just really nice yarn. It is AMAZING, SMOOSHALICIOUS, DIED AND GONE TO HEAVEN yarn. Meet Lhasa. Lhasa is our newest arrival from Debbie Bliss, and let me tell you, it is serious Bliss. It is the ultimate in treat-yourself yarn! The feel when you knit it....that luscious finished feel. It will just leave you speechless. Lhasa is a beautiful 50/50...
