In honor of receiving my new camera cord (I still can’t find my old one…) I am pleased to show off a few of my sock club kits that have arrived safely in Oregon.
First up is the August shipment for the Art Walk Sock Yarn Club (picture to the left). The color is Toreador, inspired by Salvador Dali’s painting The Hallucinogenic Toreador. The yarn is a merino/bamboo/nylon blend and feels light and soft. The colors are muted and unique.
Next I received my July Pick Up Sticks kit (picture to the right) and it’s a great one. The yarn is Sheldridge Farm Soft Touch Ultra 100% Wool and it is in an intense color aptly called Green Apple. It has a lovely spin to it and it is so soft. The pattern that came with it is called Grow and it looks like a challenging one. I have a feeling I’ll be turning to this kit in the midst of dismal winter for a much needed shot of color.
Finally, the Fall kit from the Loopy Ewe! Wow! Another winner! This season’s kit includes an exclusive Claudia Hand Painted Yarn in intense autumnal colors as well as another fantastic Lisa Parker Wildhorse Farm Designs sock pattern, Pheasant Run. Yet again Sheri also added in a few extra treats including a great little sock club notions bag, some stitchmarkers from Good To Be Girl (a pumpkin and an autumn donut), a packet of cider, some peppermints, and a little book with sock tips.
So, tonight is the big Cat Bhordi book signing in Portland. I had planned on going, but now I don’t think I will. I’m just worn out from the move and I don’t really know any one. I’m sure it will be fun though…Who knows. Maybe I’ll change my mind. Or maybe I’ll order a pizza, watch a couple movies, and knit all night. 🙂
