I'm having a sock yarn moment

Here are some photos of recent sock yarn acquisitions, for your viewing pelasure. They are not great photos and I apologise. There is a sunlight deficiency in our house at the moment. Get up in the dark, go home in the dark, grumble grumble grumble........


Firstly, this is Knitpicks sock garden in Zinnia, from a swap with JamieKate from Knitty. This is for socks for dad for christmas. Since he's the type to buy white socks and dye them pink/orange/red/blue on purpose. And James wonders why I'm slightly eccentric.

And this is Fyberspates sock yarn in blue/green/yellow. It's lovely and it was on sale but I have a small rant, and I've put it here. Save me writing it again.


If I don't post on Monday, a picture of J's finished socks, will someone come and beat me around the head??!!

Gorgeous yarn!! I should have some NYC suggestions for ya, but also check out Wendy at Candle Yarn and Catnaps (link on my blog), she might have some yarn shop suggestions for you, and the exchange rate is in your favor!!

I LOVE the colors in the Fyberspates, but I'm interested to hear your rant. I'm always up for a good rant.
