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.

Yarny goodness

Yarn purchases from our trip:


Plymouth Yarn Co. "Happy Feet" 90% superwash merino, 10% nylon. approx 192 yds/50gr

Purchased at Yarnside Gathering

Colors: No color name just numbers, one is red and the other is pinks to dk pink/purple

I bought this yarn to make two different pair of fingerless mitts. It is great yarn! I used this yarn previously to make the Green Jasmine Mitts and Basketry Mitts.

I'm not sure which pattern I'll make but the FGF group on Ravelry is having a catch-up kal. We can knit any pattern from the last three years. 

Something new! "Flying Saucer" by Schoppel Wolle, 75% virgin wool, 25% nylon. approx 420m/100g

Also purchased at Yarnside Gathering

It is dyed by hand in a double ply yarn in order to get identical pairs of socks.  Did you catch that?! Identical Socks!!

How could I resist?!

Cascade Heritage, hand painted sock yarn, 75% superwash merino, 25% nylon. approx 437 yds/100 gr

Purchased at Unwind The Yarn Shop

Color: 9824, Greens

Solid colors previously used from SKA May10 Mystery Sock (still on the needles) and for Orange Lizzy.

Soft yarn, very nice to work with, and feels nice on your feet.

Now back to knitting.

I've knit with the Cascade and the Happy Feet, but I've never even seen the Flying Saucer. It looks cool!

Oohh, very pretty yarn! It seems the cooler temperatures we've been having this would be a great time to sit and work with your knitting, all cozy in the house. :)

I think I like yarn more than knitting! PRETTY!

Love your yarn. I remember when I cross stitched, I would buy new thread and just sit and admire all the pretty colors!

Lots of pretty yarns! I'm looking forward to seeing how the "Flying Saucer" yarn knits up.
