Yarn Pr0n!

I couldn't resist this:

Hand Maiden Cashmere and Silk in the Sangria colorway - I plan on making a little scarf out of this to tuck in my jean jacket collar - it is so soft and gorgeous I can't wait. I nabbed an extra GoKnit Pouch for my summer sock projects - they work the best of any project bag I've found. The Loopy Ewe is responsible for this little downfall - and now I've got a $25 credit sitting there.


This is my first shipment from Scout's Swag. This color is called Rowing Home (inspired by Winslow Homer). I think this is going to become a pair of socks for my MIL for Christmas. She is quite envious of my mom's. Any pattern suggestions? She has a very tiny foot.

The weather has turned grim again, we've even got thunder outside the window. DH and Puck are heading to the cabin tomorrow morning, but the Teen has Lacrosse early in the morning and later mid-morning as well. I'll be working the scoring table in the rain. Thank goodness I have a lovely windbreaker.

I also found season two of Torchwood on iTunes - yay! I won't be unplugged until the weekend is over. I'm also getting a post of FO's ready to show you this weekend.

So, are you a Captain Jack or an Ianto follower?
 
That Hand Maiden's is beautiful! It's no surprise you couldn't resist it.
 
I got the Scout's Swag too, but my purple section is almost black. I really like it. I don't know what I'm going to do with it yet, but I really like it.
 
Oh, the Handmaiden is gorgeous!
 
That is gorgeous yarn. How about the Primavera socks they are on Ravelry. It is okay to "fall off the wagon" every now and then. I was hoping to go to the Shepherds Harvest next weekend to "fall", but hubby has to work and I am too chicken to drive up there by myself. Can't wait to see the socks you knit with the Scout's Swag.
 
I love Sangria! The yarn too, what beautiful colours.
 
The Seasilk is gorgeous - I've been looking at that colorway, but your picture makes it look very different than online....can't wait to see what you do with it!
 
Wow. I've never seen any of Scout's yarn. It's so watercolory delicious, and I love the name.

Can't wait to see that lovely scarf.
 
Let me know what little scarf you go with. I have some of that Handmaiden too!
