Loopy Ewe Sock Club

I’m so excited that I got my next shipment of the Loopy Ewe sock club.  I love this club.  The Loopy Ewe does such a great job, but in a way I am sad.  See after this year, I have to go back into the lottery to see if I get in the club again.  While I know it’s great to give other’s a turn at getting in the club, I will miss the great shipments if I don’t get in.

This month, we got a skein of Fleece Artist yarn.  I believe the color is Daffodil.  It’s 80% superwash and 20% nylon.  There were two patterns included:  A sock pattern and a lightweight shawlette and we got a set of the Namaste Oh Snap bags in red.  I really like these bags.

I am so loving the Sanguine Gryphon’s Bugga and Skinny Bugga yarn.  I have been so successful at getting her yarn from her website.  This last time, I got Skinny Bugga in Blue Metalmark and Tomato Frog and I got 4 skeins of Bugga in Rainbow Scarab.  I have been dying to get Rainbow Scarab since I saw it knitted up in the Multnomah shawl pattern.  Fortunately, this color was available in unlimited skeins for a short time in her shop.  I just love the Sanguine Gryphon.

I also got 9 skeins of Fantasy Naturalle in 9005, a purple colorway, from the Knitter’s Edge to make a blanket for Maggie.  She loves to be covered and I think she will like the color since it’s one of my favorites.  They had a great buy on this yarn ($3.00 per skein).  I couldn’t resist.

I am in a cleaning and organizing mood this spring.  So, I reorganized my yarn stash.  I tried putting all the sock yarn in one place and all the same brands together.  I found out one thing.  I am a yarnoholic and I need to stop buying yarn.  Help!
