Since I probably bored you to tears yesterday with dry reading, to close out my "RED" July month on Tasty Tuesdays I have some more fiberlicious yarn pics! YAH!! :oD
I just can't seem to stop buying sock yarn!
The more I buy it the more I really need to be knitting some up! Haha! In due time...in due time!!
To intro today's yarn p0rn is Jitterbug in Raspberry!
I had no idea clue about Jitterbug yarn, but when I saw this all knitted up on Wendy's blog (who will be color swapping with me in August!) I knew I had to have it! The funny thing is I kept inquiring about the yarn for the name and colorway to her and her downstream swap pal and when I finally got it I stumbled upon it like the next day! Ha! It was definitely fate so I HAD to get it!! Right!? Right!? :oDI love the reds and purples in it...OF COURSE!! Both are my favorite colors in one (which you normally don't see)!! Yah!! But honestly this photo shoot does not do the colors any justice! They are a tad bit deeper/richer than this lighting shows (depending upon your monitor b/c they look accurate at work vs. home! haha!) .
Next up is my very first purchase of Koigu!Yep I gave in so I could foam at the mouth like everybody else!! :op Again, I am doomed to hand wash all of my socks and I have come to terms with that since I have a nice 8.4 oz bottle of lavender Eucalan soak over here! :oD
Of course it goes without saying (but I will anyway) you gotta see this in person!
As you can see this is the Koigu Premium Merino (KPM) in color #2227. Let me tell ya there are so many shades of red to select from that I had a hard time making a decision. There was only 1 skein of the colorway I was really excited about, but I was impatient and got the #2227...you just wait! :op
Yep both of these yarns are really special! So I had to stash them away! Someone please call the yarn authorities on me! Haha!
I have put myself on restriction - on sock yarn that is! ;o) until I actually start using the sock yarn I already have! That should be easy to stick to for a little while. I have a lot to work with now! (And I normally hate having a stash! What has come over me??)
I say this is a great way to close out a RED fiber month of July! :oD
