Enable Enable Enable

I wasn't planning to blog today, but since Cristi outed me as her enabler, well, I have decided to share that power!

First, you must take a look at the Mystery Stole 3 inspired Swan Shawl Pin by Romi. It is BEAUTIFUL and if the bank every gives me my money back I will be snapping one up! ETA: The bank gave me my money today!!!! I now have one of these beautiful swan shawl pins preordered. You know you want one!!!!

Next - The Loopy Ewe (my favorite enabling site) had a Sneak Up last night. Now in the shop ... Lime N Violet Sasquatch Sock. This is the first LnV offering at TLE and it is almost gone. Here, we have some LnV Sasquatch from my personal stash (so these colors weren't offered) in The Cloak Maker (top), Atropine (bottom front) and Prozac! They are all pretty!

Also at TLE is Fiesta Boomerang. Holy shit. This yarn in seriously SMOOSHY!!! I can't wait to knit this up.

Eva had a little snuggle time with some Fiesta Boomerang in Stargazer. If you look to the left, you can see that there is some blue and yellow in this skein as well. Its 100% Extrafine Superwash Merino in a DK weight (so your socks will knit up fast!!!) and has a whopping 320 yards, so more than enough for a nice pair of squishy socks. Soon, TLE will be carrying the Fiesta Boomerang Baby (I think is what it is called) which is the fingering weight of this seriously AMAZING yarn! This yarn may be my favorite thing right now.

Well, other than Rozz, who was nice enough to show off this skein of the new Cherry Tree Hill Sockittome (available at an introductory price at TLE). This is The Gypsy Rose colorway and I love it. The content of the new yarn is 80% superwash merino, 20% nylon. I can't wait to have this on my feet!!! Last, but certainly not least is the Dream in Color Smooshy! (out of stock currently, but there will be more soon!!!) This is the Cool Fire colorway, which oddly enough, Wendy Knits recently knit up - I already had mine when she was working on hers. I tell you it was meant to be! 450 yards of handpainted superfine Australian Merino. Holy Moly!
Even Rozz is impressed with the yarn...he was sniffing it...that's my boy!!!
The Loopy Ewe offers free shipping over $75. So if you need a little something to put you over the top and you don't want more yarn *gasp* pick up a Honey House Bee Bar. These bars are a wonderful gift to yourself...or someone else if you are nice. The Scented bar smells of honey and beeswax. Its yummy!!! I haven't tried the Lavender bar *eyes longingly*

I guess that is enough for the day. Despite my splitting headache and desire to just go back to bed, here I am bringing you the things I love best right now.

Great yarn choices, and did I mention that we love you here at The Loopy Ewe? :-)

Rozz seems to be guarding the Cherry Tree Hill - maybe he's trying to tell you something - like, that is his choice for his new cat blanket...
