Stash Enhancement

The last week has brought much stash enhancement.

I received the first shipment from the Cookie A sock club and the Janel Laidman Art and Sole club. I am very excited about both.

Here is the yarn from the Cookie A club. It is String Theory Caper yarn, which is a lovely merino cashmere blend. I am going to start the sock in March.

Here is what I got from the Janel Laidman Art and Sole club. It too is a merino cashmere blend, but this one is from Pigeonroof Studio.

The red was very pretty, but at sock club at Lamikins a friend of mine got a different color and we traded. So now I have Inkpot.

Then, of course, I was tempted at Hazel Knits yarns. I purchased 4 skeins even though I knew the Feb club shipment was on its way. Here is what I got, two skeins of Entice, her cashmere blend, in Blacklight and Vamp(Wendee sent me this for designing the mystery sock for her group on Ravelry. Isn't she amazing?) Then Artisan in In the Colver, and Piquant in Sassafras.

And of course I could not let out the LYS, Main Street Yarns. I purchased some Malabrigo and Mini Mochie.

I also finished a pair of socks. They are Gentian, the mystery sock I designed for the Hazel Knit group on Ravelry. They are done in the colorway Toad Lily.

There is more. I will have to save it for another day.

Unfortunately, I was ill for the first sock club. But everyone in the house is well now, and I am so excited about sock club tomorrow.

Here is the pattern I developed for it.
