Knitter: Salvation - or Yarn: Overload

Okay, can you tell I've been watching a lot of summer blockbuster movies? But it's true about how it never rains but it pours.

Yesterday, I got not one but two packages of yarn in the mail!

First of all, the Fiber Fix saved my bacon big time in that I found a skein of Pagewood Farm Yukon sock yarn in Bird of Paradise on their site on Saturday, placed an order and it arrived yesterday.

A very good match. I plan on ripping back to the start of the final lace border and knitting again using the new skein. The rest of the skein - I'm thinking socks for me (since the shawl isn't for me) or some fingerless gloves.

In the very same post came a package from Scout's Swag! My sock club skein came! I have the last one earmarked for a baby surprise jacket but this one might make a pair of socks for me.

I'm backed up on the projects and Older Sister just asked if I've remade her 1824 Cotton sweater yet. No, not yet!

Oh, and one more thing. Some people (who already have entirely too much yarn! You know who you are, Guinifer!), wanted to know where I got my Spud & Chloe yarn. I bought it up in White Bear Lake at the Sheepy Yarn Shoppe. I think they are getting ready for a big Spud & Chloe yarn opening later this month but they had it there and were happy to sell it to me last week!

I'm not a big fan of knitting with cotton but I'm liking the Spud & Chloe so far. No photos because it's just a lot of garter stitch right now but I'll post something when it gets interesting.

Right - now, off to do something with all that yarn!
