Creative title, no? I'm a teenage girl who enjoys knitting. A lot. Even more than I love knitting, I love shopping online. Put those two together and you get my bank account laughing at me and lots of yarn and pretty knitting-related stuff. It's pretty great.. the majority of the time.

This is starting a bad case of startitis...

I spent Spring Break in Iowa. Iowa has some really great yarn shops, I should know. It's all I did all week: yarn hunting.

Manos Del Uruguay Silk Blend, Raveled here. Words cannot describe how soft and silky and smooth this yarn is. I love it, and I can't wait to start knitting with it. (I just need to fins the perfect project first..)

Cascade Ultra Pima, Raveled here. The color is soooo deep and rich and gorgeous. I need to be buying more cotton because summer is almost here and wool doesn't go well with hot summers.

Zwerger Garn Opal Handpainted (I think..), Raveled here. The label is in German or Dutch or something, so I honestly have no idea what this is. I do know that it is very pretty sock yarn and will make a fantastic pair of socks someday.

Zwerger Garn Opal Rendez-Vous, Raveled here. It's pink and purple and self patterning (all things that amuse my mother), so this is for her. I'm pretty excited to get started working with this yarn.

Ella Rae Lace Merino, Raveled here. This is sock yarn, not lace.. I don't get it. Anyways, this yarn was a colossal pain in the ass to wind. It made a cake so tight I could barely get it off of the ball winder. I had to rewind it carefully (after detangling it) to get it how I wanted it. It's too pretty to ignore.

The gang's all here. Sooooo pretty, I'm excited. Unfortunately, having all of this new yarn is making me want to start on a hundred new projects. I REFUSE. I will finish something before I start something new if it kills me, I swear.


  1. Nice finds!
    The word garn is Swedish for yarn, maybe I can translate the label for you. If you write down here what it is, i'll let you know what it says :)

  2. \o/ yay for yarn porn!!
