Sock Hop Yarn

I received the box about an hour ago- and I am just so happy. Admiring the colors and how soft the yarn is. I can't wait to cast on. I think just a simple sock at first, cause the colors are just stunning! But which color to pick first- I don't know!
The world as we know it is a mess, work is problematic, and I am so happy. Am I nuts or just the lucky owner of hand spun, hand dyed merino Sock Hop Yarn from Crown Mountain?
Have you ever seen a more beautiful sight? (barring your children and the Grand Canyon...)

Oh I would be so happy if those beauties arrived at my doorstep one morning! As you said - which colour would you start with? Such a difficult question but oh, the fun you'll have! Thanks for the advice re the sleeves - I think I'll be brave and try that on yet another long sleeved creation of mine (not entirely my fault - it dropped loads after washing) Happy knitting!

sooo gorgeous! i'm thinking you should cast on something floral to go with all of the flower pictures you've been taking lately.

I'm trying to write something coherent, but I'm hyperventilating too much to think properly. :-)

Oh Those are so pretty! I'm waiting for my skein to come. But they won't even be getting the skein from the spinners until next week, so I got a while to wait.:(

Wow, you got a great score there! That second purple one from the bottom is gorgeous!

I was able to snatch up two colors myself, isn't the spinning just amazing? Here's to handspun socks!

The top one looks like the colorway I bought, My Boyfriend's Back, and I see some others I would like to buy next time. You took such a great picture. I really like the selections you made.

Isn't it wonderful that yarn can make us so happy? I wonder what made me happy before this yarn addiction hit me. I can't remember anymore :-)

I know the feeling. I just got about eight ounces of their roving which I can't wait to spin. You picked some lovely colorways there.

Those are lovely. The one with all the pinks and blues is especially pretty.

Fabulous! I'll try to tell myself that I'm lucky not to have the yarns because I don't have to decide what to do with which one first. They look too pretty to be socks.

I wouldn't know which to pick first either. It's all so beautiful.

Gorgeous yarns!!! I'm thinking of purchasing an old barrister's book case--the one with the glass doors that cover each shelf. I'll display my yarns in it, for the whole world to see!!
