Sock Yarn Spoiled

Part of the reason why I'm able to give away so much sock yarn (just go leave a comment on this post for your chance to win! Thanks to everyone who has commented already!) is because I'm totally spoiled when it comes to sock yarn.

I have an amazingly cool blog friend named Leone who blogs at
Land Unknown. She's very creative and funny and super sweet, and sometimes she sends me sock yarn for no reason at all! For those of you who don't know, for the last two months I haven't had a working mailbox in my apartment building, and I've had to drive to the post office every time I want to pick up my mail. (This is supposed to be fixed today. I'm not holding my breath.) Two weeks ago, I checked the mailbox in the building (it wasn't latching properly, which is why they started holding the mail at the PO) just to see if there was anything in it. And there was! It was a little sock-yarn-sized package from Leone. Who knows how long it was sitting in there. Want to see?

Mmm. I'm looking forward to using it. Thank you so much, Leone... I'm sorry for being such a slacker in sending thanks and posting about it. You're very generous!!

Then last week I got a mysterious package when I stopped at the post office. I'm certainly not against receiving mysterious packages, especially when this is inside:

It's the New York City colorway from J. Knits. There's 550 yards! I will be able to make an awesome pair of socks for my huge feet with this yarn. It's SO pretty. I asked around and finally figured out who sent it... Brenda!!! She signed me up for a sock club through the Yarn Grove, so I'll get more sock yarn in December and February! How cool is that! Thank you, Brenda!!

This past Monday night, my BFF Wendy gave me three skeins of Claudia's Handpainted in the limeade colorway. I've been drooling over it since we got it in the store a month or so ago. It's sooooooooooooooo limey. I'll have to find the perfect pattern for it. Thank you, Wendy!

I've definitely been blessed in sock yarn acquisition lately. I better get cranking on more socks!

That's too funny we both got the LL flamingo at the same time. It's such a great colorway and I think I'm on a flamingo kick. The Mobius was flamingo pink and green, reminds me of those yard ornaments
