Here's my Bayerische. I love the way it looks like a fancy Aran sweater. The merino/silk blend yarn is really nice to work with.

I got my hands on some much-needed cash today. I paid all the bills that had been collecting, and then you know I had to get some more yarn.

First was a skein of sock yarn from an indie dyer. It's for a swap, so I won't say any more, in case the intended recipient shows up here. I will identify the company later, because their yarn looks pretty and the service seems top-notch.

Then I went to Blue Moon Fiber Arts. Yes, I know I still haven't knit the final kit of last year's Rockin Sock Club, but I needed yarn from them for another swap. The swap yarn looked so lonely there in the shopping cart. I had to buy some more so it wouldn't have to make the long trip from Oregon all by itself. (Yes, I'm aware of how crazy this sounds. I still think it is better than other things I could be addicted to, plus my feet are warmer.)

Finally, I hit Knit Picks. I'm doing my first mystery shawl KAL in a few months. KP's laceweight is beyond reasonably priced. Even with them miniscule shipping charge added, it'll only cost me around $10 for the yarn. Can't beat that with a stick. Even pointed ones. I'd originally intended to buy the Bare stuff and dye it myself, but changed my mind. It cost a tiny bit more to buy it in a color, so I did. Now all I need are somethink like 3000 likkle bitty beads.

Hiya Karrie, no I'm not doing STR this year. It's a great club, but I'd rather buy just the weight (STR lightweight) and colors that I like.
