Blame Canada...


Shelridge Farms Soft Touch Heather, Opal


Shelridge Farms Soft Touch Heather, Gunmetal Blue


Shelridge Farms Soft Touch Heather, Crocus


Shelridge Farms Soft Touch Heather, Cajun Spice

I've ogled this yarn after seeing Cookie use its handpainted cousin for her Pomatomus socks, and "watched" over it at SimplySockYarn.com for the longest time. Its not as squishy soft as the 100% superwash wool... not superwash! Shelridge Farms sells at the same weight (this is a wool/nylon blend), but quite nice and has me happy re: prospect of solid socks...

The Canadian yarn has pushed me to the breaking point... my bin no longer will close. And I have more yarn hurtling towards me via USPS and the Knit and Crochet Show in Oakland is coming up... a new bin? I don't think they make them bigger than the one I have. I know I have a lot of yarn I need to find a new home for, don't really want to ebay or sell it though. We'll see.

Confidential to DN, Canadian: thanks...

Guess you'll have to invest in another bin and have two on the go! Those are some beautiful colors - can't wait to see some FOs!

You need a bigger bin ;)

I saw that Spacebag come in a tote version now :)

I love the colors!

It is definitely time to decide you need two bins and if you do decide to get another then you have an excuse to fill it!

Now the tune of "blame canada" is going to be in my head for the rest of the day. Thanks....

I have been eyeing the Sheldrisge Farms yarn from afar, and you are not helping me keep my distance :).

Gorgeous yarn and great pics. Perfect eye candy. I had my eye on the Opal colorway for some time. Can't wait to see the finished product.
