My yarns from gnarledpaw arrived this week.
This is Other Eden:
This is Dark Landscape:
I've decided to do Tour de Sock this year. There's zero chance of me winning anything even though I knit fairly quickly (the Finns knit at the speed of light). I'm doing it to donate to Doctors Without Borders and as a stashbusting exercise. Signups start tomorrow.
The part about it being stashbusting might be a lie. The many fine yarn companies that sponsor the TdS supply discount codes to the participants. Discount is a magic word. You know how they say that if you eat broken cookies, the calories don't count? (When they break, the calories all fall out.) It's like that with a yarn diet. If you buy yarn with a discount, you aren't going off of your yarn diet. I got the yarns pictured with a discount, so my yarn diet continues.
At least until the discount codes start appearing.
