Remember the Yarny Goodness that I promised? Well, here goes. This all arrived at my house just before the New Year (and is accounted for in my sock yarn mileage!)

From Crown Mountain Farms we have Chasing Rainbows Dyeworks Mohair-Merino 55/45 in Coral Reef.

This is some Austermann Step "mit Aloe Vera und Jojoba Ol", which I found at Pine Needles, a LYS in Cable Wisconsin. These colorways have no name - it is just 08 on the label.
This is Fyberspates hand dyed sock yarn off of ebay. Yummy.
This is Grit and Innocence from Yarn Ahoy's Etsy site. This is 100% superwash = 330 yards. She offers 20% discount on new customer's first orders.
Lastly, there is MCY's Emerald Forest - 100% wool superwash - 550 yards.


In the meantime - I've finished seven preemie hats. Look! Preemie hats on parade!

In the meantime, I've finished my first pair of socks for the Sock Marathon and half of another hat.

Comments:
Wow! Great yarn, great piles of knitting! Is that what you do at all those hockey games? :-)
 
Those hats are adorable!!! That yarn makes me want to shop.
 
Those hats are great. And I'm a little jealous of all your new yarn.
 
Yummy yarns! And I really like what you did with the pom-poms on the preemie hats. You have a good eye for color.
 
Those hats are fantastic! So bright and cheerful - they'll look great on some tiny babies.
 
Luscious yarn! And love the bright and cheerful preemie hats, too. :)
 
Gosh Guinifer, nice job on the preemie hats! Love your new yarns, I think the Austermann is my favorite.
 
The hats are too cute! I've been meaning to do some of those...
 
Holy mackeral, have you got sock yarn. I've gotten quite a stash myself but it does NOT compare to you. I think you lead by far! The coral reef is awesome. :-)

I'm going to add those preemie hats to my list of what I'm going to knit this year. There's a hospital I know of that appreciates those as well as IV Wristers for the kids. All you do is knit an oblong shape in a rib, sew up the side leaving an opening for a thumb, then continue stitching to the end. Apparently, this helps the kids deal with the fear of having iv's in them. I believe Bev's Country Cottage is where I saw the pattern.

By the way, your last package will be on its way late next week. In it I will reveal myself. Maybe. Haaaa! I may make you suffer to the end of the month. We'll see.

Have a great day!

Just Me
 
Must. Not. Buy. Sock. Yarn. Argh!

How did you like Pine Needles? They're always closed when we drive through Cable, so it's been well over a year since we stopped there. I thought they had a good selection, just wish I'd had time to look around more.
 
You will love the Yarn Ahoy yarn. I bought some of her yarns before Christmas and I love them.
