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.
