Newest additions to my Yarn Family

(About this time now, I’m on a plane on my way to Chicago for Stitches Midwest!)

In June, Dave had a contest, Two Duhs, and I won! The yarny prize arrived last month but I haven’t been able to blog about it until now.


I’ve yet to try either yarn, so I look forward to knitting with them. Thanks Dave!

Another new yarn acquisition in July was the latest shipment from the BMFA Rockin’ Sock Club. I’m sure many of you have already seen the lovely Peaseblossom, either in person, or on other blogs, but here’s a picture anyway.


I’m thinking about using this yarn for the first club pattern, Cedar Creek, since I haven’t knit those yet.

Last weekend, I went over to the Three Kittens Yarn Shoppe because I had a gift certificate from my birthday and I needed some Wool Mix wash. I wanted to use up the rest of the certificate, so I browsed until I found something I really liked.


Even though that handpainted yarn was all fuzzy and abandoned, (it was the only skein of that colorway I could find), I really loved the colors.


I’m not sure what kind of socks I’ll make with these… I was thinking maybe mosaic or fair isle, but would I have enough yarn?

I was also thinking that it’s funny, since I was in the SYAC this spring… I don’t think my sock yarn stash has even diminished, but has grown since then. Oh well!

    Gorgeous sock yarns! I LOVE knitting with Sundara – I hope you will, too. And I hope that you’re having a blast at Stitches MW – are you going to the blogger meetup?

    Did you have a good time at Stitches? Mine was simply “okay.”

    AAA! So many delicious skiens of yarn in ONE POST! I can’t take it!

    Congrats on winning the contest!

    How was stitches? – I saw some pics from others that went, and I envy you.
