Yarney Goodness



While I haven't bought any cross stitch stash lately (other than the Essy's Friends automatics), I have been buying a fair amount of yarn lately. My latest purchases arrived yesterday from Kpixie - three skeins of bamboo yarn in a color called Sky to make the sweater pictured on the cover of the Summer 2006 edition of Interweave Knits and two skeins of handpainted sock yarn by Claudia in the colorway John B.

I must stop reading other knitter's blogs because I've been totally sucked deeper into my sock obsession. That is the way I recently discovered Blue Moon Fiber Arts and ended up buying two skeins of their unbelievably soft and gorgeous Socks that Rock yarn in Red Rock Canyon and Pebble. I think I will be starting a basic sock using Pebble tomorrow to kick off my Summer of Socks. While putting in the link, I discovered they have updated their site with new colors so I'm off to see if I can be tempted a bit more before June 1st and the "I'm on the wagon" starts.

Oooh, what fabulous yarn! I love the handpainted one - the colours are just gorgeous!

It seems there are lots of knitters these days. I have thought of taking a class to learn, but the last thing I need is to get another hobby I can't afford! :) And I have finally sort of weaned myself of just buying without thinking! Books and stash! So I will live vicariously through you!

That yarn is just to drool for. :-) I can't wait to see what you do with it!

Hi, Patti, I've joined the blogging world . . . and it's fun to see you've gotten a hankering to knit socks! Tell me more about your Summer of Socks (or I'll read past blog entries of yours).
