I get quite giddy when I receive new yarn in the mail and this week has been no exception to that rule! Now I know you all are shaking your heads at me and telling me “you’ve got to be joking, you just created a mini shop in your studio and now you’re buying more????” Well, I’ve mentioned in the past that I do have a slight addiction to yarn and I’m crazy about sock yarn, what can I say!
I received two skeins of incredible yarn from Sam, the proprietress of the Yummy Yarn Studio ,in a blend of 75% superwash wool and 25% nylon in soft muted tones of gray in the colorway called Vodka. My photo does not do this yarn justice, but hopefully you will get the idea.
I have to give Sam a shout out too as she mentioned she does have a few more spots of her “Wrapped In Yummy Yarn Shawl Club” available, so if you’re interested, you can visit her shop online to order. Of course I have to tell you that I’m rather excited to be part of her club and that the first club package includes my design for a wonderful worsted weight shawl. I promise once I can, I will share photos with you !!
I also received another beautiful skein of Springtree Road Muscadine Sock Yarn in the colorway Frosted, a very soft lavender color that reminds me of spring!
I’m not quite sure what these lovely skeins are destined for yet, but I’m envisioning a lace shawl and a pair of lacy socks!
On a side note, do you ever end up with left over yarn and not sure how much yardage you might have left? I do all the time and sometimes I re-skein what I have to determine the yardage. But Clara Parkes of the Knitter’s Review offers a great solution to determining the amount of yardage you might have left.
