Look what I just bought!

Just made my first real sock yarn purchase. Up to now I’ve been using worsted weight, but this is 100% Superwash Merino wool from sockpixie.com (you may know her from Ravelry)

Gorgeous, huh? I’m so excited!!!

Oh my what beautiful colors!

Really gorgeous!

I walked into a new-to-me store not so long ago, and walked out with five skeins of sock yarn, three handpainted. They’re so pretty just as they are, they may sit on top of my knitting basket for awhile.

Love the colors of what you ordered, it will make some beautiful socks!

gorgeous colours - enjoy!!

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM:heart:

Gaw-jussss!! :heart:

:heart: Very nice. Can’t wait to see the socks!

Thanks to all for loving my new sock yarn!!! I can’t wait to get it. DH thinks I’m nutty to get all excited “over some string”, but he can’t help but laugh.

I’ll post a pic when I’m done. A few other projects in line first. I’ll probably just pet it for a while anyway :wink:

She makes these beautiful creations each week and posts them Sunday nights at 6:00pm for purchase. You have to act fast to get them. I feel lucky to have gotten one of the last remaining skeins. Please do yourself a favor and go to her site for a little drool-time - you won’t regret it. :thumbsup:

simply gorgeous!

Beautiful, inspiring colors! Please post your FO! :slight_smile:

The yarn is beautiful! Such bright, soft looking yarn. I can’t wait to see what you do with it.

I’m so torn between buying the last of the hanks in the color you’re getting or waiting until Sunday to see what comes up next. I’m so glad my fiance was taught knitting when he was young… he at least somewhat understands the obsession over “some string.” :heart: Good thing with what seems like weekly shipments of yarn and knitting supplies showing up at our doorstep. Is it bad the UPS guys greet me by name? :stuck_out_tongue:

Lovely! I’m interested to see what you think of sock yarn. I had been using just sock yarn and I started a pair of socks in worsted weight and the just went so much faster! I couldn’t believe it. I started knitting socks in sock weight again and it felt like thread. I like sock yarn, but you can’t beat the instant gratification of worsted weight.

That’s the reason I wanted to try sock yarn - to see if I would like knitting on smaller needles and, the finished product, of course. I do love knitting socks with worsted weight too so I’ll keep on it no matter what yarn I have. I’ll let you know how I do.

P.S. - The yarn shipped today!!!:woot:

Hmmm… I should have bought the one yarn. Instead, I went back Sunday and bought three. Somebody stop me!

Seriously, thank you for linking to such a beautiful collection of yarn. I got the pink and purple ones for me. The brown is for my sister who requested socks with [B]brown[/B] in them and followed with the words, “Surprise me!” Cashmere and merino in beautiful colors ought to surprise.

Now, hopefully, I can stay away from the site this next Sunday… :stuck_out_tongue:
