Cat Bordhi sock kits plus other great yarns

I spent this morning unpacking more yarn. It is always a happy day when the mail man and UPS lady arrive.

From Lorna's Laces
A new kit called Flying Carpet Socks by Cat Bordhi. The pictured socks are Lorna's Laces Gold Hill and Mountain Colors Wilderness. The 5 other available colours are

LL Mixed Berries & MC Winter Sky
LL Sassy Stripe & MC Sun River
LL Tahoe & MC Mountain Tango
LL Rainbow & MC Meadow
LL Iris Garden & MC Wildflower

We also received some skeins of Helen's Lace. This is lace weight yarn, 50% wool, 50% silk with 1250 yards on a skein. The colours in this box were Lakeview and Tahoe-more colours have been ordered. It is always a surprise opening a box from Lorna's Laces. We never know what colours are going to be there-kind of like Christmas.

In Shepherd Socks we received
Child's Play
Purple Iris
Mt Creek
Iris Garden
Jay Pond

The box from Dream in Color was full of surprises as well-both good and bad. I thought the box was going to be full of Smooshy (the sock yarn) but there were only 2 colours-Flamingo Pie and Butter Peeps. The good news is that we received a lot of Baby-the lace weight yarn.
Spring Tickle
Deep Sea Flower
Petal Shower
Chinatown Apple
Dusky Aurora
Cocoa Kiss
Cloud Jungle
Flamingo Pie
Go Go Grassy
Lunar Zazzle
Pansy Golightly
Into the Mystic

I am going to turn the heat on and knit for a bit. It is cold here today. I can't wait to get home and turn the fireplace on.
