A great week for fluffy mail!

Oh my goodness. I can't believe my good luck this week. First of all, I have been searching and stalking like a crazy woman for some Wollmeise sock yarn. It has been near impossible to get for some time now and after not trying for awhile I thought maybe the craziness had died down. I was wrong. People in the US were setting alarms at 3am to wait in the off chance it was stocked.

Finally I sent out a plea on Ravelry and wouldn't you know that people who did not want to trade/sell their Wollmeise PMed me saying that they would for me since I'd never tried any! So nice. Two skeins arrived this week (from two different Ravelers).

The first is Indisch Rot on the 100% wool base. Beautiful shades of red and orangey red:


The next is Thriller on 80/20 Wild Thing:


Even Mr. Starfish who is unimpressed by most yarn and thinks "stalking" websites for yarn is crazy, has commented twice on the colors in this one!

Then (as if this wasn't enough) my last installment of the Dashing Dachs fiber club came today and what a way to end. One of my favorite DD colorways -Goldfish on merino:

I'm with Mr. Starfish --- that color is spectacular!

Can't wait to see the socks.

It is incredible. Those reds are to die for. Not good enough for me to wake up at 3 am, but spectacular nonetheless.

Mr. Starfish:

Mr. Starfish would never suggest that yarn stalking is crazy, as I have been known to stalk cigar auctions.;)
