Bloomin Feet Update!!




The pic is a tad blurry for some reason but don't these colors make anxious for Spring?

Sunshine Yarns is a vendor that I found on Etsy and if I'm not mistaken was one that was recommended by Lime & Violet. I have ordered one other yarn from this shop but haven't had time to knit it just yet!

This yarn is SOOO soft......you just can't help but pick it up and "pet" it!! LOL!!!

This is the second yarn I have purchased in anticipation of making socks for my Bloomin Feet secret pal. I do have one other skein of yarn in mind that I am going to order today. I have read several blogs and there are quite a few of you out there that have already completed your pair or at least one.....and here I am still ordering yarn!!! I will have my decision made this weekend and get something on my needles in the next few days!!!




My other 2 choices are: Wisteria







And Viola

The Sunshine Yarns is great! Perfect for spring - do that do that. Also it's a great yarn in general - my Haystack Socks were Sunshine Yarns.

Weell, since I have a skein of Wisteria from Fearless Fibers and know how soft and purty it is, I vote for that one.

Donna said...

The problem with this swap is that despite the fact I have enough sock yarn to outfit a small army, I just keep seeing more and more that I want! ;)
Love the Wisteria and especially the Viola.

I'm with Donna... this is just one of the ways to build your sock yarn stash to mega proportions! You see "just one more" you have to have on a daily basis! (another reason why I wanted to get mine complete :)

Oh, and I love the yarns! I'm not sure I could decide between the three of them...

Well....I guess I named my blog appropriately didn't I? LOL!!!

The Yarn collecting is as much fun as the actual knitting!! LOL!!

All three yarns are nice. I would have a hard time deciding which one to use.

clothesknit said...

pretty pretty! how to decide though? they're all so pretty in a different way. the sunshine is cheerful, the wisteria a bit more moody and the viola more sophisticated. maybe pick the one you'd like to knit with most? i dunno.

and don't feel bad...yarn is still winging it's way to me!

Love all of your choices! I know any of those skeins would be perfect. Have a great weekend.

sprite said...

Oh, all three are gorgeous. Sorry I can't be any help to you in deciding, but feel better in that I'm another BFer who has yet to put yarn to needles...

Teyani said...

I haven't picked my yarn yet either - but the process is getting narrowed down.
All three colors are beautiful. I'm thinking that when you choose a pattern that you want to knit, the yarn choice will be more obvious. I'd like any of them if it was for me.

Becky said...

They are all beautiful but I love the wisteria the best! I'm gonna steal that from you if you don't make blooming feet from it!

I don't see how you can go wrong with any of those. Beautiful yarn! Keep on collecting :)
