One of the reasons I joined the Blue Moon Fibers Arts Rockin' Sock Club was to force myself out of my comfort zone color-wise. However, I must say that this month's yarns excites me WAAAY more than any of the previous 3 shipments.

Goody Goody Socks that Rock Lightweight

What can I say? It's pretty and girly and has a good dose of pink! It's called Goody Goody (and it's only available to members at this point).

Other recent stash enhancements will further emphasize my love of pink:

Quilla Socks that Rock Silkie
Silkie Socks that Rock in Quilla
(81% merino, 19% silk)

Guava Enchante' (Kaalund Yarns)
Kaalund Yarns Enchante' in Guava (pinks and corals and golds)
(100% cultivated silk)

Peony Mohair and Wool (Lone Tree Wools)
Lone Tree Wools Mohair and Wool roving in Peony
It's not quite this intense in real life, but it's the best I could do. Lone Tree Wools is owned by Betty Shreeves, my spinning teaching. She's also married to a co-worker, which means the fact that she has no online presence doesn't really matter -- my orders are hand-delivered!

And I now have a Flickr tag for pink! I just need to go through my entire photostream and tag all the pink.

I wasn't much on pinks. But I have to say you might be converting me. ;)

Very Pretty.

Wow, that's a very pastel-y STR color. Did it come with a pattern? Something called "Two Shoes" would be appropriate huh? ;-)

Wow! Those pinks are just great!

I haven't seen such a pastel STR before - it does seem very you. :) Heh - it could take a LONG time for you to tag your photos with pink. ;)

Deb said...

That's a lot of pink - but I've been in a pink mood lately too!
