Tasty Tuesday!

I took some yarn p0rn pics over the weekend because I got some yarn in for my secret pal that I just had to snap before I shipped it off. I had to do a quick photo shoot because I probably won't ever buy that type of yarn for myself so I had to get a Kodak moment in! LOL
Of course I can't show y'all because it is a secret! :oD. I will once she has my reveal package (in the mail as we speak) and comes by to visit my blog, then I will show you all her yummy goodness I sent her!

For now I have a tasty pic of yarn that I bought myself when getting my SP her loot. I originally ordered the well known and talked about Lorna's Laces yarn, but Kpixie (who has great customer service and fast shipping!) was out of stock on the colorway I wanted. :o( I was a little bit disappointed since that would have been my first time having LL in my stash! So for a substitute I decided on Artyarns in Ultramerino4
Of course it had to be in purple! :o) I love this colorway (#114)! It is 100% Luxury Merino Wool (according to the label). All 191 yards! Mmmh I think even for ankle socks I am going to need two of these....I only ordered one!! Ha! I will have to get another one ASAP. Good things do come in small packages! ;o) Isn't it lovely

Also, I never did give y'all a decent photo shoot of my lovely Hill Country Yarn sock.
I was still taking pics on my cell phone cam so here is a better look at the Sweet Feet Sock yarn. This is a more of an accurate view on the colorway:
The colorway is called Indian Stone and is also 100% Merino Wool (I must be dooming myself to handwash socks!) Next sock yarn purchase will be superwash! :op
As you can see I am stocking up on sock yarn in anticipation of cranking out some cute pairs!

Certainly you all didn't think I was crazy not to show you my first love! NORO!!! :oD
I am really enjoying the fact that I get to play with SO much of this yarn knitting up my Lizard Ridge afghan (boy is this a big project).

This colorway #224 is my favorite one out of all the squares I have been making. This is Silk Garden.
I really love the purples and golds in this set.
Really is a fantasy come true! All of this NORO surprise in one big luxurious blanket that I can just wrap myself up in. I can't wait!

That is it for Tasty Tuesday! I hope you are enjoying some fabulous fibers over there too!

    I love the yarns! Beautiful. I never bought any good yarn. Just the stuff you find at your local craft stores. I really want to get some of the "nice" yarns I see so many of you using. It's too pretty! I guess I should use up some of my stash too.

    Love that Artyarns. I see you're knitting the Lizard Ridge, I'd love to have a go at that. Does it take lots of yarn? How many squares have you done so far? BTW, the sock is ankle down, rather than to up. Thank you for your comments! I love it too, halfway down the second one at the moment x
