BlahBlahBabble Knittastic!

Yum, Yum, Yum!

KoooooiiiiiiggggguuuuuWhat a fabulous, relaxing day! I got up this morning and worked more on my Clapotis; I’ve now dropped two rows of stitches, so I am making some progress. (The Clapotis is always such fun because you feel like you’re being so dangerous, living on the edge, dropping stitches intentionally!) Then Elaine called to let me know that today would be a good day for lunch, so I went to her office to pick her up at 12:30. Lunch was all too short, but definitely fun! We’re making plans to go and photograph Hermann Park this weekend for Assignment: Houston, so that will give us even more time to catch up.

After I dropped her off back at work (the waitress and I tried to talk her into not going back, but we decided that wouldn’t be smart), I went down to Yarns 2 Ewe to see if they had the lace pattern I needed for The Amazing Lace in stock, and they did! Yeah! So now I have to write up my “Meet the Team!” post by Sunday, June 4th, 11pm. While at Yarns 2 Ewe, there was no resisting the Koigu. Kooooiiiiiigggguuuuu… They must have received a shipment somewhat recently, because they has TONS of colors in stock! Pastels, brights, darks, earth tones, solids … oh, it was wonderful! I only bought two skeins for myself, one of which will be returned – I need one more for another Charlotte’s Web, and since I did not have the other yarns with me it was easier to bring them home to test the colors here. I did manage to get two skeins for Ann in London who taught Mike how to knit. Two skeins of Louet Gems Pearl in Eggplant and a skein of OnLine Supersocke 100 Caribic Color (#734) somehow managed to find their way home with me also. Gee, not sure how that happened.

I have a lot of summer knitting ahead of me!

Nice yarn porn! So… just out of curiosity…. what are some of your favorite colors for sock yarn?… you know… just in case some one decided to bring you some next week… you know…. hypothetically speaking…

Well, Jeanie, you know… That Hill Country Sweet Feet Self-Striping sock yarn has been calling to me for some time now. In case you wondered. 😉

In general, any sock yarn is good sock yarn. I tend to go for blues, more blues, purples, greens, maroons, browns. If I looked at the Hill Country sock yarn color card, I would say that all of the following are very “me”: Purple Mountain, Indian Stone, Bluebonnet, So Blue, Blueberry Wine, Autumn Leaves, Shasta Daisy and Project Spectrum May. Now we know why I haven’t ordered yet, I seem to have a sock yarn problem!

Trish, I’m not sure which amuses me more – the fact that I have infiltrated your yarn buying decisions to make you want to buy Koigu, or the idea of you hearing me saying it! Teehee! 😀
