I’m now a Loopy Groupie! (Which means I’m doing my part to put Sheri‘s sweet and helpful children through college!)
Things were a little more organized in the bag when it arrived, before I pawed through it. Firstly, there’s the tote, which is very cool and useful. Then there’s the two samples of Soak wash, which I plan on trying soon — I’ve got two pairs of socks needing to be washed. The Loopy Kisses aren’t visible in the picture because they’ve been in my kitchen since Friday. I love using peppermints in my coffee in the morning.
My first Regia. A gift of yarn for my Loopy Groupie induction. If you click the picture, you can go to flickr and see the big version, which shows you that each ply is a different color. I think this yarn will make a good, basic ribbed sock someday.
Wollmeise in Red Hot Chili. I’m sorry if this disappeared out of your cart on the morning of the sneak-up, because it is pure gorgeousness. You can’t see it in this picture, but there’s more yellow in the colorway.
I don’t know yarn terminology too well, but I love the way the base yarn is spun. It’s not what i would call squishy or squashy like Koigu; I would hazard a guess and say that it’s tightly spun. I would compare it to Jitterbug at this point, with the exception that the Wollmeise is a much thinner weight. It’s probably the thinnest fingering weight I think I’ve seen.
I guess no one is ready to talk about Harry Potter yet. I am practically bursting with a desire to discuss it with someone!
