New Sock Yarn

Great new yarn dyed by Shelley can be found at my LYS .

It's super soft merino superwash. Feels great. I had to laugh when I got this home and
wound it into a ball. It's the exact same colorway as the koigu I bought at PURL in NYC last year. If nothing else I'm consistent.

My mother is 80 years old today. She got out of the hospital just in the nick of time for her surprise birthday bash. We almost celebrated without her which would have been very bad. It was a bad Weight Watchers weekend for me. I fell WAY off the wagon. But, hey, your mother only turns 80 once, right?

I do the same thing -- I must really love navy tweed yarn, I've bought it in three different incarnations! Last Friday at knitting I pulled two handpainted skeins out of my bag, one Koigu and one from Knitpicks, and again, the colors were almost identical.
