(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!
Happy New Year!
