Ohh, shiny!

I am about to say something I haven't been able to say in over 4 years:

Until this week, I had not bought yarn in over a month and half.

I know, shocking. You can pick yourself up of the floor now.

It's not that I was consciously not-buying, it's that I was busy doing other things. And I obviously have plenty of yarn already. And not having a discount anymore makes me think a little harder about buying stuff I don't need and won't be able to knit for a while . . .

Although that only goes so far. I can't resist brand new yarns!

Koigu Mori and Flat Feet

That's 3 skeins of Koigu Mori, the new 50/50 Merino/silk blend that Koigu just released. It's really, really gorgeous! Very soft with a wonderful sheen. This is color M223, bought at Purl, and it will become a lacy scarf. Eventually.

Underneath is a new novelty sock yarn called Flat Feet. This, my friends, is one of those products that I really wish I had invented! Not because it's groundbreaking or anything, but because it's perfect enticement for sock knitters -- we always want the latest and greatest sock yarn, and changing it's physical put up? So simple! So brilliant! I had to have it! Here's the link to the manufacturer's website if you've never heard of this. I'm not sure I'll be able to knit with the kinky yarn without driving myself crazy though, so I may hank it up, prewash, and then knit. But hey, I'm crazy like that.

BTW, I'm doing some blog redesigning, so please let me know if something looks wacky! The picture on the upper right won't always be of the shawl, I just have to resize a bunch of other pictures to fit so I can rotate through them . . .
