Making a wish list, and checking it twice :-)

Being aware that I have at least two possibilities of folks traveling from the US to the Philippines in the next 6 months, I dutifully made a wish list of knitting stuff I badly need from there.

The needle brand would most likely be Susan Bates, as I'm familiar with it, and satisfied with the performance so far. Affordable too...

Here goes, a list in progress:

Size 1 circular needles, metal
Size 6 double pointed needles, metal
Sizes 8, 9, 10 circulars, 16 inches long

Another row counter (well, maybe 2)

Elann's Canapone hemp yarn in the following colors, including Green Tea, which I already have some of but will get maybe 2-3 more balls, just in case:

Those yarns look wonderful, Amy!
I also like the colors you picked. Would a hemp blanket be as comfy as a cotton one?

Thanks, Mimi :-) yes, hemp gets softer and softer through continued use and washing... it's also rather durable, and won't shrink, unlike cotton :-)
