Fresh off the UPS truck and in my hot little hands- and Lea-Ann isn’t even here to see it. This is the newest sock yarn from Mountain Colors- a superwash/nylon blend sans mohair. It’s been on order for quite some time. I have fondled it and smelled it (I must admit I was a bit disappointed as Mountain Colors usually has a wonderful vinegar-ish smell and it is absent) and oggled every colorway. They called last week to approve the shipment and I have been not so patiently waiting for it to come in. I am a huge Mountain Colors fan – the colors seem so intense and vibrant to me. Even the darker, more somber tones seem alive. Yeah, I know all the Thursday knit night ladies are practically foaming at the mouth to get their hands on this but since I won’t be here I may have to hide the box- at least until I get scans for the internet. Wouldn’t that be slightly wicked of me?
Edited 4/8/10 Lea-Ann is concerned that we’re going to get spam because I used the words “oggled” and “fondled”. Ooops, I said it again! Boy, add that to the talk in a previous post of drug deals and inhaling and an unnamed previous president will be all over this.
