MS&W 2007 Yarn purchases!

Dzined hemp and wool sport weight yarn that will be make into socks. That's the top one. knitSB and I each bought a skein to do a sock knit-a-long.

Middle brown and teal yarn is from Autumn House Farm. Stideaway Shetland in the color Moor Stalker is 100% Merino. It is beautiful. Don and I each bought a skein. (the colors on their website don't do it justice) I think they will make lovely socks, don't you?

Bottom yarn is from Just Our Yarn in Travelor and is 75% superwash merino and 25% nylon. Great color and knitSB and I each bought a skein.

I did make it to the "Fold" for the Blue Moon experience. Of course, I had to go back and see what was left after the feeding frenzy. I'm glad I did. Left to right in the Heavyweight Merino Socks that rock are "Jade," "Rose Quartz," and "Hoofle Foofle." I like the feel of this yarn and the weight. I thing they will knit up nicely for my own socks that rock socks.

knitSB and I both got a skein of Smoky Topaz in the medium weight. I think this could be another knit-a-long for us. Isn't this nice? The couple that knits socks together, stays together. *grin*

And I picked up a pattern from the "fold" as well. I'll post some pictures of this Mystic Sea sock when I get it started and finished.

That was all the yarn I purchased. I got KnitBeth a bottom whirl drop spindle. I wanted to find some great lace weight yarn but didn't find any that just made me to want to knit lace immediately. I also didn't find any fiber that was better than what I can find at home from Cider Moon.

Additional updates on the last month next!
