I have waited six months for this

This deserves drama, so play along with me .

This arrived today....


I have waited six months for this yarn:

Sock Hop Yarn from Crown Mountain Farms
Superwash Merino sock yarn
Colorway: My Boyfriend's Back
Approximately 200 yards

The long version: Last fall I saw Wendy knitting socks from this yarn and the vision of it smacked me upside the head. It was what I had been looking for but did not know it until then - know what I mean? I immediately followed the link with every intention of finding a spot in my budget to purchase this yarn, but found that when they posted the sock yarn it sold out within an hour. So I put my name on their e-mail list and have been patiently waiting ever since. Last Saturday they posted sock yarn for sale and I grabbed 2 hanks. I want to study the play of color, maybe enjoy holding it in my hand a while, and then knit something special. This is a special treat. Hee hee.

I love getting yarn goodies in the mail. We learned the hard way to just buy the yarn if we like it because we will kick ourselves for a long time until we can find it again. Not like we plan to use it right away but the happy thought that we can. Besides it's a nice feeling to look on the shelf and see it all happy and ready to become something at our whim. I love the name of the yarn too. I immediatly started singing the song in my head. You deserve a special treat too!

"my boyfriend's back". Honey, if your boyfriend's back is that color, he's been out in the sun too long, LOL. Sorry, I couldn't resist. *Gorgeous* yarn!
