Birch, not Birch, Birch again

I started Rowan's Birch with the lovely Jade color of Kidsilk Haze, but the needles just weren't cutting it so I ripped it out. The little pile in the front is the yarn that is tangled beyond repair. I plan to knit a Kiri with it instead and I think I found some better needles that are on hold at my LYS till their sale this week. The yarn on the right is Brown Sheep Naturespun Sport in a pretty maroony red. It is now going to become Birch. I have had a cold since Tuesday night and didn't knit at all till today. I am about 2 1/2 repeats into Birch with no problems with this yarn. When I bought this Naturespun I also bought some in a light blue to make the Fiber Trends Butterfly Garden shawl. I used this yarn for my Flower Basket Shawl and I really like it. The next time I am at this Not So LYS, I plan to buy some more in a brown shade to maybe make the Garter version of Birch to leave at work.
