I Did It Again…

The Yarn Truck came this weekend! I don’t know what happened, they just deliver this stuff when I’m working. Ok, ok, I’ll reset the shopping counter, if you all insist. Part of the problem with ordering online from vendors who are also bloggers who know me is that they can bust me big time when I break the yarn fast and don’t “fess up”.

The top yarn is Dream In Color Baby, in the color Flamingo Pie. I bought this from Kris, and honestly, I’m pretty sure she must have a warehouse across the street from my house. I ordered it, and it was here 2 days later. Go there, she might still have some left. This will be a shawl someday, when I quit squishing it and start knitting.

The second yarn is from Shelly at Butternut Woolens. It’s her once-a-year special, the Rabbit’s Foot angora blend, color Foxglove. This will make some great socks. I just love this yarn. It’s soft and fuzzy, and that photo does not do justice to the colors.  She included a little sample skein of one of her other sock yarns, which are equally lovely.

We’re off tomorrow on another adventure. One of my sisters lives in North Dakota, the other in Phoenix. Guess which one we’re all descending on for a week in March? I’ll be in the sunny state of Arizona for a week. We have lots of activities planned for the week, including a few* adult beverages! I’ll try to post from the road. I’m off to pack the knitting projects!

* OK, maybe more than a few…

  1. So what if you have to reset your counter? That way you can be sure that it’s always working … 🙂
    Have a fun trip!

  2. Naughty, naughty! But then, who wouldn’t be tempted. I’m considering buying some Dream In Color from Kris for a shawl for my sister for Christmas. Have a great time in Phoenix. Where do the puppies stay when you’re gone?

  3. Oooh those yarns are beautiful. Only the tax man is keeping me from falling off the wagon. After the cruelty of April, I’ll visit those vendors.

  4. I haven’t been over here in a while, and now I know why. Get thee behind me, Satan, and stop waving that yarn in my face.

  5. oh my – they are scrumptious.
    and easy to understand how you could fall off the no yarn purchases wagon – (grin)
    Have a wonderful, restful time in Arizona, and pack some sunshine in your suitcase for when you return home.

  6. It’s ok. We always need yarn.
    It’s a basic necessity of life.
    Well I guess I forgot to add…
    Which are all in direct collaberation with the yarn. So we can’t live without those either.
    See, you are covered.

  7. have a great time in AZ. And go look for yarn stores – great time and location to buy those needed summer yarns!

  8. Thank you for the link to Butternut Woolens…I have been craving angora, and a blend that works for socks could just hit the spot!

  9. I’m closing my eyes and screaming, “QUIT SHOWING ME BEAUTIFUL YARN!”. I’m trying so hard to be good, oh well, I’ll live vicariously through your purchases.
