Now these are a hot commodity. I have a hard time finding Kool-Aid packets. I found these in limited supply at a small grocery store. They only had these flavors and grape. I forgot to buy grape.
I am not usually a fan of bright colors, but I read that if you dye gray wool you get nice earthy tones. I want to try that. So I guess I'll have to get some gray wool, sock yarn perhaps? And since I have recently been inspired to make my own self striping from Aquaknits and Eunny, I just might have to give that a try. Woo hoo!
Yes my friends, more sock yarn. Thank you for your comments yesterday. I am perhaps embarrassed, perhaps proud, that is only half my sock stash. That was the new stuff. Knit Picks Dancing should be arriving today, some Bearfoot will arrive in 4-6 weeks (so much for the website saying it was in stock, harumph). I told Hila I was only going to knit from my stash...as soon as I built it.
What is it with the sock yarn? Well, I was always a 2 skein buyer. I tend to go for smaller projects. The Sunrise Circle Jacket will be a new thing for me. I haven't been buying much yarn in the last couple of months, but then the sock bug hit me. I had recently cleaned out my stash, assessed the space and justified my budget by reminding myself that despite the fact that I pay NYC rent, I don't own a car or maintain a yard. All I have is my stash.
Ok. Obvious deletion of my wardrobe, but just go with me here.
