New Stash Stuff

I only bought 2 things at the New England Fiber Festival. They were the things I couldn’t imagine leaving there without. There were a few other things I really liked but I decided to just get the things I would be missing terribly if I didn’t get them. Above is a skein of Mad Color Fiber Arts Luster in color last friday night. I’m thinking of making some socks with it.

I have never bought a sock kit before and honestly have never had the urge until I saw this kit. It’s Holiday Yarn‘s Steampunkery Socks by Heatherly Walker. I can’t wait to cast these on. There is something about socks with buttons that makes heart sing.

Beth brought me yarny gifts! She always gives me things I have never seen before. First up is a skein of Tess’ Designer Yarns. It’s so soft and so pretty.

This is a skein of Unplanned Peacock Studio Diva sock in snakeroot. It’s gorgeous and it has cashmere! I see super soft socks in my future.

For now these skeins will wait while I knit the Cassidy sweater and the socks for N. You wouldn’t believe how loudly this new yarn is calling to me.

  2. Only TWO??? And as for the Unplanned Peacock Studio Diva sock, I guess you’ll just have to put in ear plugs! Oh, All the sock is beautiful. Don’t you wish we didn’t have to do anything but knit…..

    I think sock yarn is so fun! It’s so exciting to see the colorway emerge. Can’t wait to see you use them.
