Did Someone Say Sock Yarn?

More yarn to add to the pile for the SUPER DUPER WHOA THIS IS SOME KINDA FUN EXTRAVAGANZA CONTEST. I think my capslock is stuck.

This is Brown Sheep's "Wildfoote LUXURY Sock Yarn." It's 75% washable wool and 25% nylon. It makes me think of Christmas. Or cranberries. If you win this you should knit some socks with cables. But only if you wanted to. Because if you win it, well it will be yours and not mine.

Allow me to state the obvious. This is Regia Silk. In kind of a funky colorway. Which is why I'm giving it away. Err, no! That's not why I'm giving it away. I'm giving it away because I'm a humanitarian and a good person and Mother Theresa reincarnate. And I'm also full of ca-ca.

Well actually I'm not full of ca-ca anymore. Actually I seem to be over whatever obscure disease rendered me horizontal this weekend. I'm sorry, is that too much information? Anyway, yesterday was spent sitting on the couch knitting and reading. I've given up battling the circs with the Forest Canopy Shawl. Well sort of given up. Instead I went out and bought another circ in the same size, stuck point protectors on the ends of both circs and now I call them straights. Everything is now as it should be.

    hey, that's an excellent method for someone who hates circs -- gives you extra-super-duper-long straights. Cool idea!

    Mm, Regia Silk. Hey, you don't have to look at it -- you can just pet it.

    Glad you are feeling better.
    Good going on the stoppered circs. I've done similar with dpns while knitting dishcloths.

    I'm loving this display of sock yarn April. Loving it! I so hope I win. I donated double. Does that win me points? Just kidding.

    Tee hee...gotta love the innovation! We need our tools to behave properly. If not, they will be stoppered!

    Glad you're feeling better.
