I need to sprout a few more arms. I know it wouldn't look great and it would definitely make buying shirts a bitch.. but maybe if I had them I'd start getting more socks knit. (Maybe that's wishful thinking and I'd just end up with more arms to hold cans of Diet Mt. Dew while I spend hours on Ravelry... which wouldn't be so shabby either) Back on track.. I had to go out and buy more plastic tubs for yarn that keeps showing up. I say 'showing up' like I didn't order it or something. I have half a dozen beauties to share today.
I'm now absolutely in love with Hazel Knits. I can't believe I didn't have any in my stash until last week. That should be a crime!
From left to right - High ocTang, Lime Granita, Tulip and Chocolatier...
They look so good it seems like they should have a smell. Ok, maybe scent is a better word. As crazy as that sounds I totally expect the Chocolatier to smell like chocolate.. the High ocTang to smell like those orange slice gumdrop thingies.. the Lime Granita to smell like mint chocolate chip ice cream and the Tulip to smell like bubblegum. No, I'm not relating it to food because of my diet! It's just delicious yarn is all.
I also tried a new, to me, dyer that I saw on Ravelry. There is no way I could pass up a yarn called Sea Turtle...
Handspun And Dyed Too wrapped my two favorite things, sock yarn and sea turtles, into one! The Ho (go here if you have no idea what I'm referring to and are a little freaked out) even sports a sea turtle hitch cover, sea turtle license plate frame and even a sea turtle inspired personalized license plate. Maybe one day I'll flash my sea turtle tattoo. So, you see why this Sea Turtle yarn was a must.
The clubs are also still rolling in. As usual, Roxanne did an outstanding job. The March Harmony Semi-Solid club shipment featured Sun Kiss...
Truly the best semi-solid dyer I've ever seen. I'm sure I've said that before. It doesn't even matter what color palette she works with.. I always love it.
I'm hoping to get a box from BMFA very soon. I ordered some great new colors the day the new site went up. I can't wait. Just what I need.. more STR.
I have been doing some knitting but 'in progress' pics are pretty boring. I'll have something to show off in a couple of days. And can you believe that it's green? I'm on a green kick that just won't stop. All I have to say about that is.. Green, if loving you is wrong.. I don't want to be right.
Back to my arm sprouting research and mentally preparing for the family road trip that starts on Saturday.
