Ooooh, I'm A Weiner!

Some time ago I was the winner on Spare Room Knits' blog. The prize was a gift certificate to KnitPicks. It took me a while but I finally decided what to order and the other day it arrived.

I treated myself to two skeins of Essential in Hand-dyed Bordeaux and two skeins of Felici in Alexandrite. And two new Harmony needles, sized 7 and 8. I do so love getting packages in the mail and even more when they are (almost) free.

And I discovered that Hampshire, the college that Rachel wants to visit is just a hop-skip-and-jump from Webs. Webs!!! This could be an expensive yarn-shop tour. Uh, I mean, college tour.

Ohh I love the colors! What are you going to make with the yarn?

Just socks...

And thanks! I love the colors, too. I'm thinking the semi-solid Bordeaux will be some sort of mind-numbing-but-stunning twisted stitch sock. There was one in a Twist issue that I liked and bought.

The stripey one will be simple stockinette socks, I think.
