A Colourful Day

This morning I had to meet more people at my house so Lynn was in the store. She brought in her current sock and the colours are awesome. You won't/shouldn't be able to lose these socks.
The yarn is Opal Sweet & Spicy 3 and the colour is Fruit Jelly. We have a couple balls left (Lynn sold a bunch today) and more balls are on the way.
This collection offers a variety of choices for each and every sweet fanatic. Sweet fruit nougat, sour fruit gums or spicy black cumin, these eight breathtaking colors, there is no way you could miss a flavor.
An order from Freia Fibers left California today. There are four new colours coming in Bulky and Fingering weight.
Hand Painted Super Bulky Gradient Yarn. Super soft single ply. Freia's process creates a strong yarn that is lofty but with very little pilling. This yarn is dreamy! 
100% wool
80m (87 yards)
150 gram ball
8 stitches = 4" on 12mm needles
Freia Ombré Fingering is a gorgeous single ply that is available in wonderful ombre colors. As your project progresses, the color will change. Great for interesting garments and accessories
75% wool/ 25% nylon
Two new brights, Vamp and Aloha,  and two new muted tones, Canyon and Vintage, join our collection this season.

Our new colors expand on our existing color concepts, with Vamp being our most saturated and passionate Red yet.
Aloha shows off the wonderful colors of the tropics in a myriad of yellows, greens, turquoises and blues.

Canyon goes deep into the beautiful shades of a copper-toned mountain with blue patina, turquoise, true coppers and browns.

Vintage is all about Shabby Chic, with faded rose leading into murky shades of kelp and ending in soft pussy willow.

There wasn't a lot of knitting last night. The games I was watching were all so awful that I turned the TV off and went to bed. There should be some knitting tonight - it's the season finale of Survivor.
