YPF: Seriously Loopy/Part 2

So remember last week? I showed you a bunch of stuff I got from that shockingly dangerous place (The Loopy Ewe) and told you I had even more goodness for today? Well, here it is.

I took these photos last Friday while I was in Pittsburgh. I’m poking around on figuring out what sock to start next (I need a gameday sock no later than tomorrow night, so I can take it with me on Sunday morning), but all four of these beauties are high in the queue.

We’ll take the introductions from the top and work down.

First, one of the two current Holy Grails of yarn that threatens to crash TLE whenever Sheri posts it: Dream in Color Smooshy. This is the Deep Seaflower colorway. It’s 450 yards of Australian Merino Superwash.

And now? More Fleece Artist!

This is FA’s Somoko yarn, which is 65% Merino, 20% Kid, 10% Nylon and 5% Silk. Colorway is Angel Fish.

Next is probably my favorite. It’s the same yarn that’s featured on Turtlegirl’s YPF today. Seacoast Handpainted Panda in the “Rain” colorway.

I can’t blame Cristi for wearing this stuff as a necklace. It’s freakin’ amazing. SO soft, and the colors are beautiful. It’s 60% Merino, 30% Bamboo, 10% Nylon. 400 yards. MMMMmmmmm…

And finally, All Things Heather!

This is 360 yards of Superwash Merino in the “Limerick” colorway. Seriously, folks. These are the most amazing greens ever.

So that’s about it from here. If we get a good sunset tonight, I may post again. This is probably my last night at VBP for the summer. All good things must come to an end.

I decided not to quilt today. It was too much set-up and tear-down considering the amount of organizing I needed to get done in order to be ready for company arriving tonight. Oh well. I’m all set up in Pittsburgh, so I’ll hopefully get some good quilting in next week. Have a great weekend!

When I got that Panda in the mail for Cristi - well, it almost didn't go to her. Seriously. I love that stuff and I don't own any of my own.

I vote for starting with the AngelFish, 'cuz I really want to see how it knits up!

Frankly I think we should both start with the Panda and have a little Knit a Long of our own. Cat Bordhi Socks anyone?
