One more peek to show you what I picked up during my Greensboro Yarnsploration, this time from Yarns, Etc.

This LYS is the sister shop I visited while in Raleigh back in August. I had a much better experience at Yarns, Etc. And it was reflected in my pocketbook. Here are the goodies

I picked up one of those cute Lantern Moon project bags, Kookaburra Woolwash (just because I never used it before) and then I got bit by a bug!!!Can I please stop buying sock yarn!!! LOL At least until I start knitting up socks again!! :op

I just luuuuuuuv me some Jitterbug by Colinette! The colors just grab me! This is Castagna #128Can you see the puuuuurty colors?!? Purples, olives, and hints of pinks. Like I said I couldn't resist! All 110g is 100% merino wool. Very nice.

Maybe I can get myself together soon and get back in the saddle to knit up some socks again. Until then I will just lust over it in the privacy of my own home! :o)

    Oooh, I bought some Jitterbug a couple of weeks ago, but I think yours is prettier. That is one gorgeous skein of yarn!

    I love Jitterbug. I have some already wound up, waiting to become monkey socks for me, after the Christmas knitting is behind me.

    I also love my Lantern Moon project bag. It's perfect for socks, hint, hint...

    Beautiful yarn dear! You must tell us how you like the wool wash. It would be nice to have a review.

    Sock yarn IS addictive...they need to go ahead & put a warning on them like they do cigarettes. Yours is lovely!

    The sock yarn rocks - you chose well! I could think of a jillion things to knit up with that right now! Well, maybe not a whole jillion...

    Girl, you can't help with Colinette. Their colorways are so compelling. When I'm in the LYS, I have to stop looking at the Colinette. I've made socks with that particular colorway and loved it. My colors were a bit softer in color. It's so funny to see how the handpaint/handdyed yarns vary, even by a commercial company.

    I think you need to knit some more socks!

    Oh yum yum yum. I just discovered jitterbug after my sock swap pal made me socks from it, and it's so nice. That is a seriously nice colorway.
