NEW Sock Yarn!!

I have gotten SOOOO hooked on the Lime N Violet Podcasts!!! Miss Lime and Miss Violet are absolutely the funniest, raunchiest, bawdiest, "ladies" I have ever heard!! They are a cross between NPR and a Saturday Night Live skit!! LOL!!

Their Yarn Porn report is great.....they find all these wonderful folks that spin and/or dye their own yarn and here are two they reported on.

First: Sunshine Yarns This particular yarn is 100% Superwash wool, 450 yards. The picture doesn't do the color justice!! SOOO soft!!

Second: Spunky Eclectic 100% Superwash, 550 yards. Again, the picture doesn't do justice to the actual colors. Spunky Eclectic will let you choose your weight and custom dye for you!! Click on the link "Order a color or yarn that's sold out" section.

Both of these yarns are INCREDIBLY soft and I can't WAIT to get started on them!!!

I AM still working on my sweater......M.A.Y. post a pic tomorrow of my progress.....which of course isn't nearly as far along as Tonni's!!!

If you haven't seen Becky's latest blockers.....Oh My!!! The "Three Little Fish" are absolutely AWESOME....she is so very talented!!!!

Well now, in addition to the Darlene yarn, which I found thru L&V's yarn porn segment, you need some of Lisa Souza'a Lime & Violet yarn or Miss Violet's Pink Ribbon. It is their fault that I have ordered these!

So glad you liked L&V. Sorry they are such a "bad" influence.

I want to see your sweater progress!!

I got some of the sunshine yarn in the first Yarn Aboard (the Haystack Socks are made with it)! I really enjoyed it, he's got such fun colors. I haven't tried Funky Electric, but their label alone is worth checking out! Cute little sheepys...
