A new Loopy lover

Cherry Tree Hill in the Mardi Gras colorway from <a href=Last friday I turned into a Loopy lover. I got my first order from The Loopy Ewe, and since I turn into a real “Loopy Groupie” when I recieve my sixth order, I will call myself a “Loopy lover” while I wait. I love The Loopy Ewe! Oh my, the package was even better than I hoped for, and the colors, I can’t even describe them. (Good thing I have photos!) The skein on the left is the Cherry Tree Hill in the Mardi Gras colorway.

Thing is, this last week had been a long one. I had a really bad day at work on monday, and on tuesday my boyfriend’s computer blew up, causing a poweroutage, and the rest of the week was just too long. You know when you are just waiting for the weekend? It seemed like it would never come.

Then friday arrived, and I got off early at work. The warm weather already had me in a good mood, but the note in my mailbox telling me I had to pick up my Loopypackage from the postoffice just made my day. Dream in Color in the Happy Forest colorway I also got one skein of Dream in Color in the Happy Forest colorway, seen on the right. I think I will make a Forest Canopy Shawl of this. I downloaded the pattern from Ravelry.com, and it only cost 6.50$. I will gladly pay that for such a good pattern. It explains alot about knitting lace, and since I have only knitted lace socks, an introduction was needed. I can’t wait to get started on that. The last two skeins in my package was ShibuiKnits in the Dragonfly (1605) colorway. I have already rolled up one of those into a ball. It will become socks as soon as the sockbooks I have ordered will arrive. (I am stalking the mailman still)ShibuiKnits in the Dragonfly (1605) colorway It is incredibly soft, and I really can’t wait to cast it on. I have another order coming from the Loopy Ewe already, and other goods will be arriving in my mailbox soon too. The next few weeks will be good mailwise.

I will post about my almost finished 9 to 5 sock later, because this is getting to be a long post, and all I really want to do is knit. For more pichures of the yarn, and also a photo of the handwritten (!) note Sheri of the Loopy Ewe sent, go to my Flickr site.

Hope you guys had a great weekend, I am still looking for a name for my Etsy store, check out this blog post to help me out.
