GOD's my island hideaway, keeps danger far from the shore,
throws garlands of hosannas around my neck.

yummy yarns!

i finally took some pics of my new yarns today. these were the ones gifted to me (via cash) for Christmas. thanks, mom and dad!

yarn #1:
Valley Yarns Franklin Kangaroo Dyer sock yarn
color: frogparty

i have to admit it. i especially enjoy the name of this yarn's color. but i do love the pink & green combo and knitting with this makes me think of spring! so it's a good yarn for me in the dead of winter.

here's what it looks like when knitting 2 socks at the same time on 1 40" circular needle. it's quite ingenious and i'm really enjoying working like this!

here's sock A. you can tell 'cuz it's the one with the stitch marker in the corner!

here's sock B. i stretched it a little so you can see how the pattern and yarn will look when i'm finished and can wear these.

yarn #2:
Plymouth Yarn Company Happy Feek DK sock yarn
color: 52 (blues/greens)

this is a little bit thicker sock yarn so should knit a little faster. i only bought one skein, so might have to make ankle socks with this. not that that's a problem!

yarn #3:
Regia Design Line by Kaffe Fassett sock yarn
Exotic color: Pool (purples, blues, greens)

i've been accused of being a lover of all things blue. maybe it's true since two of these yarns are very blue-ish. hmmmm.

yarn #4:
Zitron Trekking (XXL) sock yarn
color: 52

as you can see, this particular yarn is very colorful. there are oranges, reds, blues, greens, browns, pinks, and purples!

all in all, i love my new yarns and hope that i don't knit too quickly with them since i can't afford to purchase more right now!


  1. Dear daughter, I'm glad you are enjoying your yarns. They are pretty, and since I saw them in person..I can vouch that they feel nice too. :)


Comments make me happy!
