So as I said last time, I joined the Sock Yarn Addicts Knitalong, and starting 4/1 I can’t buy anymore sock yarn, but need to knit from the stash. Our first assignment is to count the stash, and then take a picture of it. I looked at my yarn inventory spreadsheet last night – there are a few skeins I forgot I had…hmmm…I do have a bit of sock yarn!
But something happened this week. Was it the knowledge that soon I can’t buy any? Or was it just coincidence that I found some great sales? Whatever the reason, I had a hard time resisting buying yarn this week.
OK, my first purchase was another skein of Socks That Rock to finish my Jaywalkers. I also bought Falcon’s Eye
I haven’t received the yarn yet, but can’t wait to get it.
The yarn is Schachenmayr Nomotto Regia 4 Cotton Surf Color; its a cotton/wool blend, and the colors are perfect for summer. OK, so I don’t really wear socks in the summer, but it seemed like a very good excuse! And you can’t beat the price.
I did see a link on Knitter’s Review to a online store that had Mountain Colors Bearfoot – I really want to try this yarn. But I think I’m done for the week. Oh, but I really liked this yarn from blackbunnyfibers on Etsy. Fortunately, between the time I was drinking coffee this morning, and the time I checked tonight, someone else had bought it. But I’ll keep checking – you never know – she may have more!
I’m off work tomorrow, and will try and resist the urge to browse around online, and actually get some socks off the needles, and on the recipients feet.
