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:
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:
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!
