Nittany Knits

Friday, May 11, 2007

I thought that I would start with the sock purchases from Saturday morning at Sheep and Wool.
Let's start with the four skeins getting the most attention. Tess makes an amazing Sock/Baby yarn that I've enjoyed working with in the past, so I knew I would be doing damage here. The cream and grey skein was one I had seen at Stitches East and I was hoping she would have it again for me to scoop up. As I snatched that one, the purples just kind of came along with it. They were running low on choices fro this yarn, so I was told if I stopped back soon there would be more. I was not disappointed. The two vibrant skeins on the left were just too wonderful to pass by.

Next up is the sock yarn from Autumn House Farm. When I was purchasing my double pointed needle holder, the yarn was just sitting there calling my name. I take that back. There was a different skein calling my name, but I let Large Marge take it home. This one came in second, but is lovely none the less.

The last of my nine pairs of socks from Sheep and Wool is a skein that I have no idea where I picked it up. I know that it was in the Main Building and that I purchased it before nine am on Saturday. The rest is blurry. Hey, it happens! The tag reads, "The Flock Bransonas", and that is is hand-painted alpaca sock yarn. Yes, you read correctly. Alpaca. I either must have been freezing cold when I bought this or was simply unable to read due to the yarn frenzy. What in the world was I thinking? We'd better have a really cold winter next year, or these babies will be for display only!
I'll show the last of the purchases tomorrow, which is exactly 51 weeks to the next Sheep and Wool!
Happy Knitting!


  • That alpaca sock yarn you picked up looks great knit up. I scored some yarn from them at some point on Saturday and the one you go was one of the ones I had been heavily considering. The seemed like really nice people, too.
