Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

Yarn seduction

A few weeks ago while visiting our youngest daughter, I got to visit Yarnside Gathering in Pensacola. I was very good. I only bought one skein of Plymouth Yarn Co. Happy Feet (in a semi-solid green).

I immediately wound it and started knitting!! and I'm very happy with it.

Well... we went back for Thanksgiving... and I couldn't resist...
I had to buy some more! Here is enough to make a pair of socks (of course in my favorite colors!)

Also, when I visited the first time, I had my eye on some Pagewood Farms merino/bamboo blend in Vineyard Blues. I did not get it then ('cuz I was being good). BUT... since I went back, why not get it?!
I have not tried this yarn before and look forward to giving a try. Especially since my favorite is a merino/bamboo blend.

But, before I can start with this yarn, I have to finish some Christmas knitting. (Back to knitting and stop petting my new yarn)

Susan, that top skein of purply-blues is gawjuss! The other one pretty, too. Good for you for resisting and good for you for getting some later! LOL :D Doesn't bamboo make the softest yarn? I can't believe it.
Toodles my friend~
