But, when faced with the recent Socks for Sanity need, I dove into the sock yarn stash, and made the difficult decision to temporarily ignore the Claudia's Handpainted (from my amazing Sockapaloooza pal, blogless Jean) and the beautiful Mountain Colors Bearfoot (won from Ashley) and a couple of recently-promised pairs. You'll probably understand once you look at this photo:
Because Emily's been dying fabric for her art quilts for many years, it was a natural evolution to yarn. And her experience shows. Don't ya think? I cast on last night, and I'm delighted. The timing is good too, because Emily just today added a batch of Sophie's Toes to her Etsy shop. Go look. And don't buy the Fall Mums or Froggy! I want those -- once I've paid off my mortgage.
Speaking of -- please expect a house-related panic attack later tonight. The home inspection is scheduled for 3pm, so I'll be a complete lunatic by 7pm. Joy.
