New Sock Yarn

So I came home from work on Monday to find this in my mailbox.
I am in love. This is Turtlepurl Yarns on This is self stripping sock yarn. Here is the exact item I purchased (its sold now though :P) The coolest part about this yarn is that it is balled with two strands so you can knit two of the exact same stripping socks at one time. YIPPEE! This is perfect motivation to finish other projects.

I am taking a couple days of vacation this week to relax and work on stuff around the house. It has been crazy busy and I just want time to slow down. (Of course time to knit as well!) My husband is out of town all this week so it is just me and the bear. A bit of alone time during the day will be fantastic! Although, Nolan and I are having a blast hanging out every night.
  Keep knitting.


  1. Hi Desiree,
    First of all, I love the background of your blog! So knitterly and fun! Thanks for the comment on my owl goodies-- the hat pattern is at I mashed together the owl cable with a baby cardi pattern for the sweater. I actually used the free pattern from Knitting Pure and Simple (, which is written for top-down, but I adjusted it for bottom-up to accommodate the bottom-up owl cables. In retrospect, it would have been easier to see if the owl cable would work top-down, but of course I didn't think of that. :) Happy Knitting!

  2. Thank you! I just loved your hat and sweater. I am going to try to recreate it :) I also adore your blog! You have great ideas and really cute knitted projects! Thanks for the tips and the patterns! ~Desiree
