Oh the beauty!
Just look at it.
This one is Cherry Tree Hill's gypsy rose. I love it. Though the picture on the site was a bit darker in color(probably a dye lot thing) I love it.
This is Cider Moon's peas and carrots. I love it too. So bright and vibrant!
When I went to the loopy ewe I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and pick something you wouldn't normally find in my knitting bag. I am thrilled I did because I L-O-V-E both yarns I picked. I think I'm hooked! I will definitely be going back there (when its in the budget, like b-days and Christmas time). Such a wonderful site, and Sheri rocks, so sweet and thoughtful!
Sheri from The Loopy Ewe also sent along some extras. What a wonderful little package she put together! Its the little things that makes you smile. I've been wanting a little way to keep track of all the different needles I have and presto, just like that I have one. Its not much, but it made my day!
I can not wait to start knitting more socks! First I have to finish my pal's socks. They are almost done a few more inches and then some toes, I think I like my tried and true short row toes best. I've done a wedge toe but wasn't thrilled with it. I've yet to do a round toe, the one kind of like the top of a hat, and I'm not quite sure what other toes are out there.
Whats your favorite toe?
Tomorrow, garden update! (We've had lots of rain!)
