Elann.com Peruvian Chunky Video Revew

I decided to change it up a bit and do a yarn review. You can probably tell I have a pretty limited technical vocabulary for yarn terminology, but I don't let that bother me. A lot of times as I do videosI feel pretty stupid, but I think the reviews are fun and I'm going to keep doing them!
I think I'm going to create a yarn-rating system.

Not good: Boo
Good: Baah
Amazing: Bah Ram Ewe!

Oh, and remember how last week I apologized for the messy room? In this video I'm at home and my room is way messier. I feel bad, but not bad enough to have cleaned up beforehand. Oh well. Peek at my things, my life, and my mess.
Also, I apologize for my webcam. Turns out that for yarn reviews you really need a good camera. I wish you could see the yarn better; the color is really gorgeous.
Anyways, on to me making a fool of myself:

So there you have it! A review of a yarn that I've knitted too much of.
And now, for the final felted piece! (I waited forever to post it because it was 100 degrees in the house and I didn't want to turn on the dryer.)
I know you can't tell from the picture, really, but this stuff felts beautifully! I guess all those itchy hairs make for easy felting. One trip through the washer and dryer and I had a small, firm bit of felt. I'm already thinking about a colorful entrelac felted purse with this stuff...

Now, because I put the word drool in the title of my blog and like to show off Vyvyan, a picture of him playing in the hot hot California sun.
Baby porn!!!! (My chunky watering the lawn.)
Tomorrw's WIP Wednesday, and maybe that means I'll finally finish the socks I meant to give Will for Father's day. (And in case you're wondering, I didn't finish the other pair of socks I started for him, either.)
Happy knitting! (And happy playing in the hot hot sun!)
