I know, I know, I still have 82 days left. However, I ordered this before the embargo.

Isn't it purdy?

This is Handsome Park Ranger and Good Earth from Sophie's Toes.

She updated her etsy site, and I think this is the purchase that finally sent me over the edge and made me decide it was time for the Yarn Fast. I don't have too much guilt about sending you over to see her site, 'cause she's on E right now (you know, E? Empty.) She has an update schedule for May 7. I will not be there (Yarn Fast), however I highly recommend you check it out.

ETA: I can't believe I forgot to link the pretty, pretty new Cider Moon Flurry yarn - it's base yarn is Louet Gems! I'd hate to fall down on my enabling duties! (Sorry Chris - maybe Chaos & Mayhem can keep you under watch?)

I'm kitchnering the toe on my first Mad Weave sock. Love.

Also? I may even cast on a sweater this week!! I've had the yarn and the pattern for Flair staring at me for a couple weeks now, for some reason I can NOT find the size 7 circ from any of my needle sets. Seriously.

It may help to know that I (and probably others) admire you for your "yarn fast." Good luck to you.

The Flair pattern looks like a sweater one would grab and wear a lot.
For what it's worth, I've been on a bit of a yarnfast myself. Not quite as official as yours. But I'm starting to make a dent, and it feels great! Keep going!
I have some of her yarns as well. Me and sock yarn on a diet? Don't even think so. Gifts don't count as breaking your diet do they>
What? A sweater?? However will you handle using large needles after making so many socks? Oh, the agony. You'll just have to toss some of that sock yarn MY way! Ha ha, hee hee, ho ho!
If you make this sweater - nice! - there is a lot of stash disappearing. So....
I don't think I can be allowed to click on any links in your posts anymore, after the Woolgirl incident...
My new Jackie O from CM is in Flurry and it's yummy! Other projects have kept me from casting on new socks, alas.
