She's so mean but I don't care
I love her eyes and her wild wild hair
dance to the beat that we love best
heading for the nineties
living in the wild wild west
the wild wild west
Escape Club, Wild, Wild West

Before I left for Portland, I bought 6 skeins of Berroco Suede to make this:

Ride 'em, Cowgirl! Berroco "Oakley" Shawl

Suede is so yummy. And Berroco is right -- it does feel like the real thing. My LYS didn't have the book containing the pattern, but I remembered scanning it at another store and that Oakley took 5 skeins. Being the semi-paranoid, afraid-of-running-out-of-yarn kinda gal that I am, I bought 6 skeins. I ended up finding the book at the Yarn Garden in Portland. When I opened it up to doublecheck the amount of Suede needed, a slip of paper fell out. It was an Errata page, informing the buyer that Oakley took 6 skeins. I feel ever so … psychic. Sy-kik. Sigh. Kick. OK, I'll stop now.
