comfort eating buying sock wool

I'm not too sure how it happened but I've just bought enough gorgeous wool for quite a few pairs of socks. Some is from the Knittery, and some from Live2Knit. I have used these shops before several times and love the yarns from them. Service is wonderful too. Service with a smile and a personal touch. Always wins with me.

Actually it was the colours that drew me in. I was surfing the net, as you do when bored, and visited Katie's site. I promptly ordered some. I've been really good about buying sock wool and haven't bought any for absolutely ages. I'm trying to knIt only from stash as sometime I will need to move again from here when all is settled. No idea when that will be. But I succumbed.

So I went to Daphne's shop and found myself oohing and aahing over beautiful colourways and my fingers clicked again. This time I have ordered some greens. It's a colour I love, but rarely buy. I think I was influenced by all the beautiful new foliage wherever I looked out of my second floor window.

I'll wait till the yarn arrives before looking for definite patterns. It will tell me what to do, although I do have a few ideas to help it decide! LOL.
