Nifty new yarn from Patons: Evita. Plus another that's only available in Canada (I WAS going to say "just like Red Rose Tea", but discovered, while link-hunting, that it's now being sold in the U.S. ... yes, semmie17, there are South Dakota dealers listed here) ... now back to the yarn, which is: Pebbles

However, am making great progress with my side-fringed scarf, for which I received the free pattern when I bought the yarn. And found a piccy of how it's going to look that it's finished (just click on thumbnail for big picture and activate the wine-coloured filter in your optical scanners so that you'll be seeing it in the correct colourway):

P.S. Speaking of being sidetracked by sewing, needed to get some little black shirt buttons for current, perfectly-darted ***grin*** project, but had to walk by massive display of 50%-off-for-members display of new cottons. So came home with buttons and a length of this (from the "Modern Moods of Japan" line of fabrics). What can I say? My resistance is low when it comes to vivid, clear colours. :p
