So the first day of finals week is done, and #2 of the three special class projects I am offering after school was over as of this evening…..AND I am trying to pretend that I am not getting sick (on finals week!!!!  Because that can’t be happening).  I have a stack of grading up to my ears, and it will be like this every day this week, and grades are due Thursday, and I can’t seem to do a thing but sleep this evening, since I got home.  I just made an emergency run to Dairy Queen for the biggest lime Misty slush they have.  It’s helping a little. 

OK.  panicking is officially over.

So, in the spirit of focusing on ‘good and happy things’, I present here some of the wonderful sock yarn that I have acquired over the past two weeks.  It makes me giddy just to look at it.  Maybe if I look at it while drinking my Misty slush, I’ll find the strength to go on…

OK, ready?  Take a deep breath…

Madelintosh Light, purchased from The Loopy Ewe. All I can say is, the photos do not do this yarn justice, and it may be my new favorite. These colors are ‘Cherry’ and ‘Composition Book Gray’. This yarn is unbelievably soft and pretty.
Also from The Loopy Ewe…
 
Dream in Color, Smooshy!!! I am also the proud owner of not one, but TWO large hanks of Dream in Color, Smooshy Sock Yarn. Every time I find it being sold anywhere, I have to buy another hank. I’m sick, I tell you! Sick! The lighter of the two is a limited edition, AND it came with a free sock pattern (It’s awesome!!!). I’m still trying not to combust.

 This concludes this evening’s installment of yarn porn.  I’m ashamed to say, this isn’t even close to being all of it, so plan on more to follow.
