Socks That Rock My World

Tina from Blue Moon Fiber Arts announced awhile ago that she would be retiring some of the STR colors. I knew I wanted a few of these colors so I'd need to hurry up and order them! (Plus, I had the sock club coupon burning a hole in my pocket.) Without further adieu, I give you the STR haul of 2008.

Wait - they retired Hoofle Foofle? Damn! That was high on my wish list. I'll have to cross my fingers and hope she brings that one back after the holidays!

I have a Hot Flash in my stash (hehehehe, that rhymes) and it's one of my favorites to look at and pet. Maybe one of these days, I'll even knit it...

Great knitters (and nurses) think alike (my haul ought to arrive today or tomorrow). I am knitting a sock in the Love in Idleness colorway - it's a beautiful colorway!
I did forget to order a Monkey Kit!
And that Lettuce Knit looks great in person...I must add to future order from BMFA.
NICE HAUL! :)

Awesome, awesome haul!

I think you'll enjoy the monkey kit. Which reminds me, I need to knit up my younger monkey her own 'cause she keeps stealing my older one's.

Awesome STR haul!

My faves, Hoofle Foofle, Cockamamie, and Amber.

If only I knew they were retiring the colors.

Good for you though!

Holy crap, what a great haul!

I've got 4 skeins right now waiting for me in Florida. I got a gift certificate, and shipping to Canada is disgusting. I'm going to visit my grandmother in Florida in under 3 weeks, and can't wait to get it when I go!

I heart BMFA STR!
