Oh!Oh! I'm in trouble.....






Look what came today - 2 boxes!








This was in the top box! Virginia van Santen 2ply fingering weight sock yarn.....you want close ups? Go here! Since knitting my Clapotis out of Painted Yarns Salome I am a true blue fan of Virginia's dyeing. Now this arrives, in a Louet box, which can only mean she's using Louet yarn which is unbelievably fantastic - think Claudia Handpainted base yarn.






This was in the second box - 8 more colors of Seacoast Handpainted Yarn. You can go here for a close up! Holly does an amazing job!


You'd think that all this yarn would start to look the same but nnnnnoooooooo - each skein is just as lovely as every other skein on my shelves and they all beg loudly to be knit.

It is now official, I do not have a hope of knitting with all the yarn I want to - there are not enough months in a year, days in a month, hours in a day - it's official! I'm finished! I have to go lie down....I'm getting a headache.

It must really be hard to live with all this gorgeous yarn! Try not to be too frustrated. Enjoy what you have on the needles, and the next thing , and the next ...

Connie - you are doll. I wish I stilled lived in Barrie, I could stop by for tea and knitting.

I have to agree with Meghan, not that we don't like you and the store, but you are driving us crazy.
