Stitches Stitches Stitches! aka Yarn Pron Monday, Vol 4

Wow. Just wow. What a fun two days I had going to Stitches West with, of course, the OCK. Lots of walking, lots of shopping, lots of fun! On to the loots!

First up is from Catalina Yarns. This is their Sol Joy woolen spun sock yarn, 100% superwash merino wool. Colorway 804. Nice stuff, new line. Will be mass produced by the summer. I purchased this in the Adirondack Yarns booth.

Next up is some lovely yarn from Ellens Halfpint Farm. 50% merino wool, 50% tencel superwash sock yarn. They have named colors, but there aren't any color swatches loading when I visit their website so I can't tell you what the name of the colorway is! This is destined to be a shawl of some sort:

Next up is Seacoast Handmaiden sea silk yarn, which will become a scarf using the pattern provided with the skein purchase. This is the Dragonfly colorway:

Next up is some pretty variegated sock yarn from Jojoland in their Melody line:

Next is a mixture of yarns obtained from the Knitter's Studio sale bins. The purple novelty yarn is Trendsetter Yarns Aura (not scratchy!!), the orange novelty yarn is Schachenmayer Nomotta Salsa and the wound ball of variegated yarn was labeled simply as "silk". I think it is a silk/wool blend. It is very nice yarn, whatever it might be.

That is all that I can post for now. I will add the rest later when I can keep my eyes open!!

Looking at your yarn, I am SOOOO wishing I had bought some of that Handmaiden now. It looks fantabulous.

I didn't get any of Cookie's kits because I figured that I could buy the pattern anytime and then use the existing sock yarn in my stash (which is getting scary) Post a photo of your kit!
