Why not? It gives us so much pleasure. So how about a shout out to some new to me Indies?
Hello green! This is another fingering weight with generous yardage in the color Green Teal Golden Amber. I'll say. Brenda is the owner of Phydeaux Designs and is a true artist. Her shop not only carries beautiful yarns but also wonderful buttons, shawl pins, and patterns. her customer service was excellent and super fast. I will be a repeat customer, so you better get there before I do!
Next up stripey goodness. I enjoy knitting with self-striping sock yarn because it feels like most of the work is done for you. All you need to do is knit a simple vanilla sock and you end up with a fabulous pair of fun socks.
Wicked fun! Seriously how happy would you be sporting one of these striped socks? The top one is Groovy Garden Party (heck yeah) and the bottom one is Carousel. Another great shop on Etsy. Again the packaging and goodies, (candy and a cute lady bug stitch marker) makes me stoked. Ladybug Fiber Company is having another shop update on May 10th...seriously you should get there before me. :)
My last yarn addiction can easily be blamed on Maryse. She gifted me my first Biscotte & Cie and now I fear there is no turning back!
This bad boy is self striping in the color Melon D'eau. Do think she designed this sock yarn color for me or what? The best part about this new addiction is that The Loopy Ewe started carrying this yarn! I have my eyes on Uniforme du sorcier and Cupcake.
A whole lot of fun bright colors for some great summer socks. Whew! Enough eye candy for you? And you wonder why I have nine projects on the needles. I haven't cast on, I promise.
I will leave you all now so I can get some sleep and dream of the next Indie dyer's shop I want to raid. As always if you have any shops you would like to pimp, let me know. Hope you are all having a lovely week. It is almost the weekend, hope there is yarn shopping in your weekend plans!
