Groupie Status Achieved

Two posts in two days...... unusual for me I know. But I was so happy when I got the mail today, I had to post again. I have attained Loopy Groupie status at The Loopy Ewe I am so happy. It has been my goal since I found them to become a "groupie" I wish my yarn budget was much larger, so I could have met this goal quicker. Isn't that a nice project bag, you can see everything you are carrying, making it easier to locate those little items that like to hide in the bottom of the bag. And I got a hank of Yarn Love in the Spring Morning colorway. One I would order for myself, it is very pretty. And also some samples of Soak Wool Wash. I love that stuff!




And for my order. I bought sKNITches Syncopation in the Handsome Devil colorway. It is lighter in color than I thought it was going to be. On my monitor it looked like a charcoal gray, maroon and tan. In person it is a dusty rose, blue/ gray and tan. But I still love it, so that is great. And the other hank is Gypsy Knits in the Rose Garden colorway, which is also very pretty in my opinion. I am going to have really warm feet this fall and winter, that is assuming I can finish more than one sock in each colorway.... that SSS you know.


The Wollmeise was screaming at me to wind it and knit with it last night. Not wanting to be a negligent knitter, I granted its wish. That is one big hank of yarn. I thought my arm was going to fall off before I finished. This yarn is a very tightly spun yarn, and has a nice sheen to it, and it is a joy to knit with. I will be buying more of it, and I think Sheri is expecting more sometime this month :)
Well I am going to go fondle the new yarn, have a great day!

Those are so pretty! congrats on meeting your goal of "groupie" status. Are any of those destined to be knit up for me? Is that a new pattern for those socks? Is it written up yet? I'm so greedy.

I love those socks at the bottom, very very nice. How nice to be a groupie of a yarn store too, wish we had that here, although I would quickly spend all my money in the one store, not that I dont already.

Just to let you know that I haven't drooled on any yarn yet, but don't dust your skeins for fingerprints or mine will be all over them. (I just can't help fondling all this yummy yarn!!)
Wish you were here :-)!!
