I also started a basic sock pattern using Artisan Acre Fiber Arts Lambkin fingering weight yarn in the color Corn Maiden. Great color for fall. I am using size 2 needles for these socks.
I received some yarn club shipments: From the Unique Sheep's Rubber Ducky club, I received a skein of pima petite cotton in the sangria colorway. I also got a bar of soap in sangria and some lip balm.
Then from the Loopy Ewe, I got my September sock club shipment. The yarn is Wollmeise (how exciting) in the colorway called Guide to Galaxy. I also got a great sock pattern, a project bag and a note pad.
This was an exciting week for me with the Loopy Ewe as I got to purchase 4 skeins of Wollmeise in a sneak up by pure luck. I must have checked the web site right after Sheri put the yarn up for sale. I am doing a happy dance since it's been quite awhile since I was able to purchase any Wollmeise. The four skeins are on their way, but I won't receive them until next week. I am letting one of my knitting friends purchase one of the four skeins from me since she couldn't get any to buy.
Some days you just get lucky.
