Yarn in the mail!


I love getting things in the mail. I'm like a small child - counting down the days until my package arrives. This package of yarny deliciousness is my very first eBay purchase. I bought this from emtnestr Linda. I'm very pleased with my first eBay encounter - fast service,quick delivery and candy! Plus this woman has a fabulous selection of sock yarn. I will definitely order from her in the future.
As for the yarn - that's right, Lorna's Laces. I've been wanting to try this stuff for ages. I've read the rave reviews and had to check it out for myself. It literally arrived in my hot little hands about 25 minutes ago and I'm going to cast on tonight just as soon as I get home. This stuff feels so nice and the colours are very pretty. Here you see displayed in all their wooly glory is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Yarn in Cranberry and China Blue. I'm very excited to try this stuff out. I've already got a pattern in mind for the China Blue - I won't say just yet what it is, just in case I change my mind, but it'll be a fancy sock for certain.
That said, I must tackle the lunch dishes and prepare to brave the elements - happy knitting!

Yay for emtnestr. Do stay away from her Cherry Tree Hill mill ends if you have the least bit of respect for your wallet.

I would recommend Roza's Socks (Grumperina) for one of the LL colourways. It was written for the Shepherd Sock, and the brioche rib is perfect with the texture of the yarn!
