More Yarn

I'm beginning to sound like I've got a problem, but when I see a yarn I like I just have to buy. I did buy these two yarns in November on my birthday so I guess its o.k.

This yarn I got on Etsy from Poppy Flower Fibers in Boulder, Colorado. The yarn is named "Winter" a hand-painted superwash Merino. I really like these colors deep purple burgundy, green to all shades in between these shades. There is 500 yds so lots of yarn to play with. Super soft and squishy

The other yarn I purchased is also from Etsy Fat Cat Knits, "Bermuda Sand" a color that makes me want to play in the sun and sand. 75% wool 25% nylon 460 yds, lots to knit with. She did have some great colors but this one took my fancy, medium tones with warm neutral shades, light dusky oranges and soft ashy purples soft shades.

So this is the end of my birthday yarn shopping. What next...........

So after work today I decided to go by Apple Yarns just to see what they had, and because they where having a knit along sock knitting on Sundays from 12-2. I got off early and just want to see what other people where knitting. No one was knitting so I had to buy yarn. I found a sooooo very soft Alpaca Sox color #1875 Pebbles. 60%alpaca, 20% merino 20% nylon, 450 yards.
It has written: Reasons to Knit Alpaca Sox: luxurious blend of fibers, beautiful colors, superior softness and warmth. Made in Peru. They had just gotten this yarn in, I had a hard time trying to pick out what I wanted to buy I was drawn to Panda Silk, 52% bamboo, 43% merino wool and 5% combed silk talk about soft I think that will be my next purchase.
I've also ordered some yarn from "White Oaks Studio" I missed the Christmas sale of her yarns at Wool girl, so I emailed Jana and she is going to dye me yarn in "Charlie Browns Christmas" and "Frosty the Snowman", I fell in love with these two colors. I bought other yarns from Jana and love the feel she has some of the best color schemes that I've seen. I want to get in to her "Chick Flicks" Tvyarn Sock Club when she opens up her next round.
My socks are not doing as well The Wollmeise pattern was frogged just restarted it. My monkey sock are to the toe so I'll see what happens from there.
Well that's all for now. Keep those sticks a clicking. Happy holidays
Well that's all for now.
