drooling....

carola and i are each other's enabler. she sends me wollmeise and i send her socks that rock. she has knit up the socks that rock that i sent her at the beginning of the year. i have been petting the skein of wollmeise that she sent me. (actually i have it wound in a ball and have swatched it. that is called "progress")

she still has not knit the tofutsies but then i have not knit the drachwoole.

in september, when she asked if i was ready for another swap; i, of course, promptly said YES!

so i sent her some more socks that rock and i got these beauties...


l to r: veilchen dark, rittersporn medium, drachenblut light, pfauenauge medium

i notice that i must like blue a lot. i actually sent her a list of 7 colors that i thought i wanted and these were the ones she was able to get. i love them all.

she also included a couple of ornaments for my christmas tree that she tatted. i don't tat. it looks too hard! thank you, carola!

Ooh! Those are some gorgeous colors -- I do love me some blues. I may have to try to track down some wollmeise myself -- people keep talking about it, and I don't want to be behind the times, right? ;)

Oh, YUM! I just caved in and ordered off Wollmeise's store. After all I've heard, I can't wait to get some of this stuff. I can only imagine the gorgeous socks you will knit that yarn into!

I love Claudia's blues, Veilchen especially since it's one I have. ;)

Oops, hit send too early.

I do look forward to when you knit yours up and what you think.

Fun fun fun! I think getting new yarn is every bit as fun as knitting with it! It's rather like purses and shoes - so what if you've only got two hands and two feet, you MUST have more than two purses and two shoes!
