Etsy, Etsy, Bo Betsy

I did it. I succumbed to the power that is Etsy. I was editing my shop and looking around for layout ideas (no, it's not ready to officially open yet) and just happened to look at the yarn dyers. Silly me! I bought! I couldn't stop myself and I bought!

One of those gorgeous yarns was the "Bittersweet" by Phoenix Fiberworks. I hope to finish the second sock by this weekend. LOVE THEM TO PIECES!

On to the other yarns:

These huge skeins (550 yards!) of gorgeous sock yarn are by Fearless Fibers. From left to right, the colorways are: Butterscotch, Lavender Whisper, and Midnight Passion. Not sure if all will be turned into socks (plenty for long ones) but... EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

This drool worthy skein is by Sunnyside Ellen, and is called Light Breeze. It's the skein that started this whole mess in the first place. You just don't understand. I. HAD. TO. HAVE. IT! And when it arrived, it was as gorgeous as it appeared on screen.

These three are from the yarn talents of See Jayne Knit Yarns. From top to bottom you are looking at: Lime and Violets, Green Tea, and Plum Camo. Yeah, I got on a green kick but how could I turn these beauties down?

And if that wasn't enough, Yarn4Socks.com was running a SALE! I had resisted right up until the evening of the last day of the sale and then... well see for yourself...

The loot above:

  • Lorna's Laces "Vera"
  • Lorna's Laces "Daffodil"
  • Yarn4Socks "Casapa Seaweed"
  • J.Knits "Boston"
  • Seacoast Handpainted "Gilded Lily"
  • Seacoast Handpainted "Peanut Butter"
  • Fleece Artist "Stone"

And finally (for this entry) I just have to show you 4 stunning balls of yarn that mom brought me back from Italy. The single ball is by Sesia and is called "Ricciolo". It will be used to trim something. I don't know what but something. The other 3 balls are by BBB and are called "Vanity". I wish you could see the colors better. It's lovely. Again, no ideas on the use yet. But for now I'm content just gazing at it in happiness.

Still need to post yarns from swaps and clubs!
