Gusto or Stealth?
(or the linky post)

All right, so this is a day or two delayed. If you followed my link the other day you will have seen that I told Limedragon that I admired her gusto in breaking the yarn diet. I, myself, tend to do it rather stealthily. So stealthily as a matter of fact that all of these have managed to sneak their way into my house in the last month or so!

First we have Chasing Rainbows Dyeworks Mohair-Merino (55/45) sock yarn from Crown Mountain Farms in Merlot. Alongside of that is Dicentra Superwash Wool-Nylon (75/25) in Eomund - also ordered from Crown Mountain Farms. So yummy.

Next we have Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Daffodil off of ebay.

and from the Loopy Ewe I ordered some Fleece Artist ever-so-squooshy Nova Socks in Blue Lagoon. Also from Loopy All Things Heather semi-solid superwash merino in Scarlet (I am in search of the perfect red - this appears a little orange/blazey on my monitor.) She sends such cute little goodies in her bag, with a really sweet note that really personalizes the transaction. I know that I will reach that discount point before I know it because I really want to give her my business.


Lastly, but not leastly, I hit Posh Yarn on their sale Wednesday. I am impressed with how quickly I received this skein of Helena in Babyface. Their website is actually down until the New Year.

All of these yarns are being counted up for the L&V Sock Marathon 2007. I like my chances, how about you? I actually still have a couple of stragglers still in the post (one from e-bay, the other is my Lisa Souza Violet's Pink Ribbon.)

Today I brewed up some barbeque sauce for the meatballs on Sunday and the rest of the weekend is cleaning flurry to if I don't make it back before Christmas. Season's Greetings to you all!

Such yummies! I love finding new patterns, and Phineas from your other recent post was one, thanks! Your WIPS and FOs all look terrific. :)
 
What lovely yarn!
 
It doesn't matter if it's by stealth or by gusto, as long as you end up with such seriously beautiful yarn!
 
Beutiful sock yarn selection. I see the sock bender is not going anywhere soon:D

Happy New year
 
Hello, my secret pal! How did the slippers finish up? Did you get them felted enough to where you liked them?

Just Me
 
You know, sock yarn might count in the marathon but according to Wendy at Wendy Knits!, it's not on the banned list. So, keep on sock knittin' and you won't have any reasons to feel you are cheating on the yarn diet! I think I am going to try and knit while on the stationary bike at the Y.

Happy New Year!
