Last week emails went out about who got into the Loopy Ewe Sock Club and who didn’t. This is the second year I’ve tried to get in and the second year I didn’t. Oh well..not the end of the world of course. But instead of just letting it go, what did I do? I shopped!! Did I need to buy more sock yarn? We all know the answer to that one. Did I want to buy more sock yarn….
And I don’t regret it for a second. I get so happy when I see that little tag on perfectly tissue-paper wrapped skeins of yarn.
First up, Shaefer Yarn’s new sock, Nicole in “Edward’s Lock”. Loved the color on their site but not at all when it arrived. I know it’s brown but it just wasn’t working for me. And just to touch it, it feels exactly like Dream in Color Smoochy. That was sent back and exchanged for another skein of my next selection.
The Alpaca Yarn Co. Paca Peds H-T in Pacaccino. Does it get any earthier than that? And it’s heaven to touch…
Hey what’s that? As I was trying to focus to take the next picture I realized something was in my way…ME. That’s a little preview of Baby ETG, all round and sweet. Is it May yet? I’m trying not to be in a rush and enjoy the process (which I am) but I just can’t wait to hold this little one.
Anyway…here’s my second to last purchase which I debated buying for months. It’s a relatively new color from Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock, Woodlawn. I just had to have it. YUM.
And this little extra was to get the free shipping. I don’t know if I’ll make the socks but I really wanted the keychain….silly I know, but….
Let’s see what happens next year.
