Yarn Update

Only a few days ago, Micah asked me which yarn I purchased when knitSB and I took the Monday I had off to explore some other LYS's.

Here we have knitSB holding the new Regia sock yarn designed by Kaffe Fassett. I got two of each color and plan on making jaywalkers. I'll make the larger size because that's what I've heard is needed. They are tight. Have you knit them? Please advise on the size!

We also picked up some Shi Bui sock yarn in these nice colors.

The solid is for knitSB and the other for me.

So, any other questions?

hey I wanna go on a yarn crawl, which shop did the sock yarn come from?

Hey Matty... that yarn came from that lovely place in Dublin that is very tempting! :)

that shuibui stuff is pretty nice looking. It appears to have a super tight twist! Pretty cool man.
Are you sure you don't need an extra ball to make some socks that fit with that regia? Somehow that doesn't look like enough.

I bought two of each skein of all the stuff. So that should be enough yarn.
