Think I am going to love this blog thing...

Look what came in the mail this week. Good gravy that is a lot of yarn!

More
Posh Yarn from Dee - the coveted Cover colorway in the Sophia 8 ply and then some some lovely Sophia 8ply cashmere in the Envy colorway. Not sure what it will become, but as soon as I do, you can be sure I will post it. Sweet Georgia Yarn - Speed Demon in super kicky colorway of Fondant, some Claudia Hand Painted in Peony from Sheri at The Loopy Ewe, and lots and lots of Koigu. Also received a really fun skein of sock yarn from Heather at Serenknity, called Breakfast at Tiffany's - I just couldn't resist!








Here is my little Samson patiently humoring me while I take his picture.

In the finished object category, I finished one of my Malabrigo hand warmers (color is Geronimo) - other to be finished today and tomorrow. Then, as I said, on to the socks!

Oh, and here is a picture of my other finished neck warmer in Posh Yarn's Indulge colorway. Knit on size 13 needles, co 50 and just some reverse stockinette thrown in so that it scrunches nicely - easy peasy! Seriously - it is, without a doubt, the softest thing I have ever come in contact with. Do yourself a favor and get some of Dee's chunky cashmere - you will love it.

Thank you for the nice comments and the welcome to blogland that I have received, I am looking forward to getting to know you....

Look at all that gorgeous yarn! I have got to check out that Posh Yarn place you talk about...

I just started knitting with Malabrigo- it really is as wonderful as everyone says. :)

I love the neckwarmer. I made some handwarmers recently out of Dee's chunky cashmere and they were to die for. They were for a present, but I have to have some myself, so indulged a little in her sale this weekend... oops! Happy Blogging!

What a great stash! I see "B at T" is in prestigious company. You puppy is so cute, too! I am dying to try some Posh Yarn myself, and MAN does that cowl look soo nice and comfy. I'm envious!

I found the Posh Yarn website thanks to a French knitting blog...and I saw your neckwarmer ! beautiful colors. I am just thinking of knitting one today because cold weather came back here in Paris (even if Spring is supposed to start today ;-) ) I wish I have some luxurious yarn like this one...hum, I NEED to go and buy some ;-)
