Miss Kitty Kitty aka Priscilla wanted to know if buying sock yarn is now being called research the other day. And the answer is yes, it is called research. I am searching for the perfect colors for my Bloomin’ Feet partner. And I just completed some more research.
I know have in my possession 5 new skeins of sock yarn that are part of my research. I did have 6 skeins but one of them was for a swap. And all of the yarns come from etsy stores. I purchases some wonderful Sophie’s Toes yarn from Emily Parson’s etsy store in Passion and Lily Pond for myself. (But they still count as research.) The third yarn that I purchased there was for a swap.
I also purchased some yarn from the Deb at Fearless Fibers. There is some one to blame for this purchase though. And you know who you are… 😉 I now have Salt Water Taffy, Raspberry, and Gentle Peach sock yarns to contemplate in my research.
And I ended up catching a ride to and from the fire hall last night. My parents were on their way home when I was headed out so they gave me a ride there. And some one was leaving at the same time I was and he insisted on giving me a ride home since he had to drive right past my house. I didn’t think it was that bad since I was bundled up with plenty of hand knits from head to toe. But I know when to pick and choose my battles.
I am still not too sure about Snape. He pay still be able to redeem himself. I think a re-read of all 6 books, in order from Year 1 to Year 6, is about to start. And did you see that Blue Alison has a book called Charmed Knits: Projects for the Fans of Harry Potter coming out right before the movie and book? Go and pre-order your copy.
