Speediest Sock Yarn Club.  Ever.

So - I'm sitting here listening to Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline because I'm feeling some retro country today.  

At the end of last year, I kept clicking onto Plucky's updates just a few minutes or a couple hours too late.  I really just wanted to try one skein of her sock yarn, but was having no luck whatsoever.  (She's actually got a few odds and ends up today for sale!)  Finally, I lucked upon a three month sock yarn club membership.  These three skeins arrived in my mailbox so fast and furiously that I never got around to showing them off.  So up above we have Sisters, the red is Queen of Hearts (Alice in Wonderland) and ROUSSisters is named for Rosemary Clooney & Vera-Ellen as the sister act in White Christmas and ROUS is ROUS (Princess Bride).  They are three different bases - but they are all wonderful.  Merino Lite, Primo and Merino/Cashmere/Nylon blend, respectively.

Oh, and in case you were wondering - the inspiration for Sisters is pretty darn clear:

Speedy Delivery reminds me of Mr. Rogers..
So, I have to wonder - will they become the fastest socks ever as well?
Heaven Help The Mister Who Comes Between Me & My Sister - love that song.

It is a dead match to their outfits, isn't it?
The color match for Sisters is amazing!
Wonderful costume! Oh, the 50's. Who doesn't love a good pointy bra and huge turquois feather fan.

Lucky gal, scoring all that yarn. I ALMOST joined STR club and had my credit card entered and all. I had a brief moment of clarity and logic that saved the day. Will I regret it? It's just so damn expensive. Besides. It's my Year of the Sweater.
