Now for our regularly scheduled program...

Okay, I'm better now. For those of you who are local, that sale will be going on next weekend, details to follow as soon as I get them. I will shamelessly admit to laying it all out in the yarn room and rolling around in it a bit, but mostly to freak out the poor dh, who hasn't quite looked at me the same since.


Now it's time to go on to other business--Sockapalooza 4. I'm really excited about it this go around. I've not picked a pattern yet, but I have narrowed my yarn choices down to two:


Koigu pppm Color P118A


Sunshine Yarns sock yarn in Twilight.
This is where y'all come in. Leave me a comment about which yarn you think I should use. I'll tally up the votes and use the yarn that wins. Then I'll draw a name from the comments and give out a prize or maybe even two! Thanks for your help!

Edit: I'll close the comments on Tuesday at midnight, and tally on Wednesday. One entry per person.

Hmmmm, I love them both but I'll go with the Sunshine Yarns Twilight.

I am not a koigu fan (just because I think it is a very humble amount of yarn for a very unhumble price) but I definitely LOVE that colorway. If you have enough yardage, I'd go with the Koigu.

I too love them both but would love a pair for myself made from the Sunshine Yarns Twilight.

I like the Sunshine yarns. That blue is awesome.

Tara said...

Hrm.. I'd go for the Twilight, but I'm pretty predictable with the blues.

I'm torn about the yarn sale. I'm pretty sure if they have one next weekend I will go but I will most likely have guilty feelings for at least a few hours

I vote for the Twilight - did your sock pal give you any idea of favorite colors? Since they are very different she might be able to give you a hint.

I vote for the Twilight - Did your sock pal give you any idea of favorite colors? Since they are so different maybe she can help you out.

Good luck - they are both beautiful!

I'm having a heck of a time - sorry you have two posts (now 3) from me. Honestly, I'm not trying to cheat - I just didn't realize it took the first time. Thank heavens I'm a better knitter than computer person!

Have a good day -

All I can say is if *I* were the intended one for those socks, I'd want the blue Sunshine Yarns one. It's lovely! (Not that the Koigu isn't lovely, but that blue. . . I'm sayin'!)

Robyn said...

I think I'm luvin' the Koigu. I have never knit with it but hear it's great.

I TOTALLY vote for the Koigu! I love the autumn colors. Not really in season right now, but perfect for when the socks go into the mail!

Eric said...

I vote for the Sunshine; I love those Blues.

Orchids are easy. Water them ever week or so then just watch them do their magic. Actually, Tony grows all of ours -- 40 or so -- so maybe there is more to it than I realize.
