Yarn Pron Fridays

It's been a while since I have had new lovelies to show off for Yarn Pron Fridays. Don't get me wrong - I have been buying yarn - but for the most part it has been utilitarian stuff. The following is *not* utilitarian - it was my Christmas present to myself.

Aren't they pretty?!?!

On top is Curious Creek Fibers in 'Spice Market' - here's a close up:

P1070263

I had coveted this colorway for so long - but I just couldn't pay full price for it, no matter how much I wanted it - so when the note came for WoolGirl's New Year's Day Sale, I made a beeline for it, and there were only two skeins left - and then there was one! I have no clue what kind of socks I am going to make with them yet, but I can definitely tell you they will be for me!

On bottom is Hazel Knits Artisan Sock in 'Federal' - here's a close up:

P1070264

This one was more of a visual stimulation of an idea - 'Federal' is such a perfect name - the colonial blue, the brick red, the brass - I just love how it all comes together. Again, no pattern in mind, but I think I know for whom I will be using this yarn.

Now I just have to finish the three pairs of socks I have on the needles before I can break open one of these new skeins!

Very pretty! I really like the Federal, it is the perfect name for that yarn. Spice Market is pretty too, I'm glad I'm not there to see them in person, or my yarn diet would be over just about now.

Hee hee! All that waiting and scrambling to get it--it was meant to be!

See, I knew there was good reason to ignore the email from Woolgirl….
