Some times it just makes you feel better

Like many knitters I need another book and yarn like a hole in the head, but some times it just makes you feel better. Getting a new book with new projects and then finding some yarn that perks you up and gets you excited again, about not just knitting but you find you are actually smiling late in the day when your ass is usually dragging. So some times even though you shouldn't have, and some times when your yarn stash is over flowing, it's a good thing to make the purchase. So here we are. this is what I got in the mail today.

and then I ordered this.

yup, it's Lorna's Laces Yarn: 2 skeins of Shepherd Sock #27 (Black Purl) 80% Superwash Wool, 20% Nylon. Out of all the socks I have made I have never used Lorna's Laces Yarn. So I'm treating myself. I can't wait till it arrives.

I have seen this colorway up close and personal and it is beautiful... You definitely deserve a little me "spree"...hehe I have felt like that for the past 2 months.. I am not spontaneous by any means but lately it has been nice to click that "go ahead I know you really want to" button...LOL!!!

I cannot wait to see how those socks come out.. ENJOY!!! Ü

Lorna's Laces is soooooo yummy. I kept my two skeins by my bed so I could touch them for a few days before they were any where near a needle. And a sock book is definitely a useful thing.

I didn't even know there was another Sensational Knitted Sock book. I'm gonna have to look into that one!
