And then today, a package from the Loopy Ewe. I showed great restraint in the wee hours of Thursday morning. It was hard but I stuck to my pre-set $$ limit. I got 2 hanks of Spritely Goods yarn. Lovely, lovely stuff. The greens, brown and coral is called Peppercorn Blend. I think this may be my favorite colorway of all the yarns in my stash, well for right now anyway. Now I have to admit, I am not much of a "pink" person, but this colorway reminds me so much of Dogwoods in bloom, (my mom's favorite tree) I had to have it. The pinks and the browns mixed with a shot of bright green just made me happy, so into the shopping cart it went. The colorway is Manzanita in Bloom II. And then I was so excited to try the Wollmeise. She had a great color selection, but the Spritely Goods colors really appealed to me more, so I only got one hank of the Wollmeise. There will be more coming soon to choose from .... :) . Beautiful shades of brown and gold and rust. It is perfectly named Spice Market. All three of these hanks have well over 500 yards of yarny goodness, so there will be plenty left over to make a baby hat or maybe even ankle socks for DD2. Sheri always puts a little something extra in the package and writes a little note. It is such a nice touch. There were yarn samples from Apple Laine and Yarn Pirate included and a lovely stitch marker. Thanks Sheri!
My take along project has been the Kenya colorway socks. I was able to do the heel turn and gusset decreases in the van on the way to Ohio yesterday. I was to the toe decreases by the time we left and closed the toe of sock 1 this morning. I have to cast on for the second one so I can put it back in the van. It is amazing how much knitting you can get done waiting on your kids :)
Have a great weekend everyone, it is gorgeous here in south central IN.
