Yarns from the beach

The end results (so far) of my vacation yarn shopping. From left to right:

--Jitterbug (100% easy care merino) in Fire; purch @ the Salty Sheep.
--Great Adirondack Yarn Company Silky Sock (70% merino superwash, 20% silk, 10% nylon) in Bahama Mama; purch @ the Salty Sheep.
--Wisdom Yarn Maui sock yarn (75% wool, 25% polyamide) color 264; purch @ Coastal Crafts & More on Atlantic Beach.
--Sockotta (45% cotton, 40% superwash wool, 15% nylon) in color 30; purch @ Coastal Crafts & More on Atlantic Beach.

I also got a Louet hand dyeing kit with three 50 gm skeins of GEMS fingering weight superwash merino and dyes in shades of brown - but the box is kinda boring, so I didn't photograph it.

I was hoping to make the knit-along at The Salty Sheep tonight, but I think I'm going to take a pass. Had a pretty busy day, plus it's the last night my dad and bro will be here. I might talk DBF into a trip to Swansboro tomorrow, tho. :-)


  1. Oooooh, I like the cherry shades in the 3rd skein...Hmmmmm. Will have to work on getting my hands on something like it! A challenge!!!!!

  2. BTW, I washed my cell phone and lost all my contacts. When you get home and have a spare minute, PM me with your #s.

  3. Ooooooo Look at them beautiful yarns!!! I like the one on the far right what colorway is that?

  4. Lorrie, that would be Sockotta #30.
