YPF: Cabin Cove Edition

Yes, I know it has been a million years since I did a Yarn Pr0n Friday post. Believe me, I have plenty of pictures all stocked up, I just never seem to be able to get my act together to do a post. Yep, there's a reason that I'm not on Cristi's blog ring. I'm too damn unreliable!

But today? Well, I recently purchased a yarn that I really thought that I’d like and when I got my hot little hands on it, I totally fell in love.

About 10 days ago, I had a really good mail day. When I stuck my head outside to check on the mail, I was greeted with this site:

The big box was the M&Ms exchange that I need to get moving on. The little one? Well that was from Dave at Cabin Cove!

I ordered two skeins of sock yarn from his selection. I do like the other colorway as well, but the one that sent me into a squealing tizzy was this one. Yankees.

I’m a blue kid. That’s no secret

But this? This is the perfect navy and white combo.

To the point where I am still debating with myself about trying to get my sweaty little paws on a second skein so that I can “have my yarn and knit it too.”

It’s an 80/20 merino/nylon blend and I believe Dave when he says it’s his favorite yarn to work with. I can totally see why!!! It spent a good solid week on my desk so I could pet it during a bad day.

I think I need another skein. Happy Birthday* to Me?

It's your birthday and you'll only turn this age once, get another skein! :D

(I'm still laughing about the Cubs book, by the way.)
