Would you like to see the latest bag of squishiness which arrived through the post from those lovely people at Wool Warehouse? I thought you might so here it is in all its glory.
And the back.
Would you like to take a closer look? Of course you would.
I admit it, I read Christine's Easter weekend post on her Winwick Mum blog and I couldn't resist this West Yorkshire Spinners yarn, I was enabled there and then. How can you say no to colours with names such as Sherbet Fizz, Candyfloss and Pink Flamingo? I love how all these colours work so well with each other so that they can be mixed and matched, ideal for socks where the main body can be knitted in one colour and then finished off with the heels, toes and cuffs knitted in a complimentary shade.
I've used Cascade Heritage Sock Yarn on two previous occasions and I love how soft and squishy it is. It's always good to have some solid colours on hand too for more fussy patterns which don't show as well on patterned yarn. I chose two skeins, one in Moss and the other in China Blue. I have to say that the Moss didn't look quite so bright on the Wool Warehouse website, it's much brighter than this photo shows, and I wasn't quite sure about the China Blue but I do love the colour now I've seen it in the flesh.
There's a Drops Super Sale on at Wool Warehouse at the moment where you can save 35% on a range of Drops yarn throughout May. Well, when I saw that, it was another enabling moment for me. I decided that I'd buy a garment quantity of yarn whilst I could get such a good discount and went for Nepal, a 65% wool/35% alpaca mix in the Camel Mix colourway. I can see a cardigan in my future.
Again, taking advantage of the Drops Super Sale, I ordered four 50g balls of Drops Fabel, two in the Pink Dream Print and two in the Blue Sea Print. This is a budget priced yarn made from 75% wool/25% polyamide so ideal for socks.
My stash is looking quite healthy at the moment so it's time to get some of it used up before I buy any more. Just remind me I said that when I feel enabled again.
