I have an admission:
I have a slight problem. You may have noticed it before. Maybe not.
Thy weakness shall show its name in sock yarn.
I’ve never knit in the Felici before (though I own two of the older colorways in Arugula and Aurora), and may I say that the fabric knit on US1 DPNs is outstanding. Soft and smooth. The colors of the new Felici colorways are bright and cheerful, too! Perfect summer socks, I would say.
Aaaand, I purchased a couple more skeins of Malabrigo from Fashion Knit in Nut Creek last week at their moving sale (they are moving to, presumably, cheaper digs over by the Target on YV Road)… 25% off all yarn, hurray! So here is my current Malabrigo collection:
Emerald Blue, Sapphire Magenta, Apple Green, and Sealing Wax
So there you have it, guys. I’ve been acquiring yarn at a sickening rate. I’d feel ashamed, but I don’t understand the concept. Have disposable income, will travel.
At any rate, it’s not like I’m not going to use it. And use it I will, because all the sock yarn scraps are destined to become a Babette! I started a few squares last week while watching a silly boy-witch movie called The Covenant.
Now I’m going to try to watch The Fountain (it’s horrendous! Hugh Jackman, I never thought I’d say this, but THIS IS ALMOST THE MOST BORING MOVIE EVER, after 2001: A Space Odyssey) and knit on Spey Valley, which I am still not done with.
