My favorite yarn shop, Simply Sock Yarn, like most shops, sends out an email newsletter and it gets me every time! I wish I were half as strong when it comes to sock yarn purchases as I am for fabric purchases. There’s a better chance I’ll use all my fabric than I will my sock yarn but . . it’s just another hobby. Simply Sock Yarn always has the most fantastic yarns and the best customer service. The mail lady brought me a much awaited yarn package yesterday. Here’s what I got:
This is sKNITches, Bebop Sock. Color: Shrimp on the Barbie. Content: 75% superwash wool/25% nylon. I haven’t knit sKNITches yarn before but it seems to be pretty popular.
This one is Schaefer Heather. Color: Simply Socks. This yarn was dyed for the Simply Sock Yarn Company’s 4th anniversary! Content: 55% superwash wool; 30% silk; 15% nylon. I have knit Heather yarn before and I love it!
This one is Alpaca Sox. Color: 1847 – Blue Jay. Content: 60% alpaca; 20% merino wool; 20% nylon. I haven’t knit this yarn before but it feels so good!
Another Alpaca Sox. Color: 1857 – NorEaster. They must be out of this color . . don’t see it on the website.
I think I’m all set and may not need any sock yarn for a while but you know that when that little email newsletter arrives, I’ll be poking more buttons!
And, if you’re wanting to see the quilt used as the back drop for my yarn, here’s the back side of it.
How do you like those feathers? 🙂
