Yarn Eye Candy Friday

This is going to look very familiar to several of you out there, it is Socks That Rock in Obsidian by Blue Moon Fiber Arts. And as you can see it is wound into a nice little cake of yarn, why is that you ask? I am a little to ambitious when it comes to knitting projects and I "thought" that I was going to absolutely start knitting when I bought it, just before Easter weekend!! Well as you can see, I didn't. So I share with you, my future socks. And the funniest part of the whole thing is, I still have to learn how to knit and entire sock. *shame on me* But they are going to be fantastic when I do...

In other knitting and blogging things, I gifted a fellow knitter/blogger Twisted Knitter (Janet) a sock project bag for being such a sweet person and a great email pal. We have exchange ideas and thoughts and such and I wanted to send her something special. I have a friend in San Diego that makes these drawstring bags out of recycled kimono from Japan. When I saw them over the Easter weekend I knew that I had to have one, okay, okay it was two. I quickly figured out that they are the PERFECT size for a sock project. So Tsuyosa Creations sent me home with a small inventory to show my fellow knitters and see what they thought. They were all gone in a day and a half. No kidding. But I managed to tuck away one for Janet. I thought that it was a perfect gift for her, it covers her cultural background and she is a fantastic sock knitter you can check it out on her blog. I will post a photo of mine in the days to come. If anyone is interested in obtaining a kimono drawstring bag, here is Tsuyosa Creations website, The website is not fully up and running yet, however there is a link to email them and make your request. There is a possiblity of a local retail yarn shop carrying these fantastic bags, I will keep you updated.
