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.
