Start your vacation right

With new yarn! These beauties were waiting for me when I got home from school on Friday - perfect timing!



First up is Cider Moon sock yarn in June Carter from The Loopy Ewe. Gorgeous.


I threw in a pair of sock blockers with my order, and I love them. They are so pretty - I think I will hang them in the craft corner so I can look at them all the time.



And from Stacy's destash - five yummy skeins of Malabrigo. I don't know what this will grow up to be yet, but it's so pretty I'm content just to look at it.

Much knitting is taking place over the long weekend - I hope to have a few FOs this week!

  6. Oooh, I'm addicted to Malabrigo. It's the most stunningly beautiful, luscious stuff. I just keep wanting to pet it!

    I got my first skeins from a secret pal, so I knit a little vest with it. Three skeins was plenty! I should have the pattern up on my blog later, if Knitty decides not to publish it.

    Lovely stuff you've got there!
