I placed my 6th order with Sheri at The Loopy Ewe & became a Loopy Groupie! sweeeet….with the order I got all kinds of free goodies, not to mention now I get exclusive insights to what they have coming in stock. That is a great bonus especially since a lot of their handdyed & painted sock yarns are gone within a day or two of being listed. And, they are going to be carrying lace yarns soon, heehee
Here is what I got in my package today!
I ordered the CTH supersock in birches and bark for more socks for George.
Tracy has taken a vacation week (which she needed & good for her for taking it) and so today we went down to Ojai to see MaryAnn at Pine Mountain Quilting about quilting a top that Tracy has from her Grandma & Mom. It was so fun to see someone else so addicted to their craft! She was delightful and full of knowledge. While down south we decided to stop in at Quilt Ventura to get the quilt backing and more fat quarters for our hoop project. Here’s the goody goodness from that stop.
All the pinks on the left are going in Sadie’s room, it’ll be cute me thinks.
Next door just happened to be Anacapa Yarns so we ducked in there too. They had Tofutsies in stock. Tracy had a swatch sample of it and the light weight feel of the yarn was a seller for me. Forget the antimicrobial chitin, it’s the feel of the yarn that gets me. I am hoping that there is little pooling and much goodness that happens with this yarn. It’s destined to be another pair for George. Good colors to go with his Crocs.
I am just busy working on socks for classes, designing and I did start the Orangina last night. I was ready to knit something back & forth. The around & around was starting to give me vertigo. I do teach a fair isle class starting tomorrow night. A simple hat pattern that I designed, I will teach them the 2 hand technique of working your colors using magic loop so we don’t have to worry about using dpn’s. It’s going to fumbly at first but so worth the effort!
