vickie howell yarns, provisional cast-on link

I stopped by Full Thread Ahead today in my ever expanding quest for an afghan crochet hook. They didn't have them, but they do have the Vickie Howell yarns in. (I'm missing her signing and "yarn tasting" as I type this, sigh.)

Anyway, the yarns are yummy! The Love in particular. It's very drapey, of course, so I am not sure what I'd make out of it but I see a garment for myself out of that in the future. I am not sure if I should steer clear of the Craft yarn or not. It was also pretty soft, but it's made with milk fiber. Somehow, that seems like something I should avoid.

In Rogue news, I cast-on the body stitches using Fleegle's provisional cast-on. I think I'm in love. It was so fast and easy! The hardest part is knitting the hem facing stitches on a 20" needle, since that's the only size 5 I have. That's not a lot of room for 218 stitches!
