Um, there might have been yarn in the last few days

I know I'm on a yarn diet, but I'm afraid I fell off the wagon somewhat.    I had a need for something squishy after all the work and in one case my yarn was end of line as the dyer is going to stick with fibre from here on.    So here we have some squishy loves for you to drool over.

Vintage Purls laceweight which will be paired with a purple yarn from the same stable for a stunning shawl

Green for the background on a pair of sheepy socks

Originally bought to use one in weaving, but have realised I really want socks (knee highs) in this, so I just have to choose the pattern now.

Didn't realise these were so similar to the sock yarn, but this will be a Simplicity Cardigan, the yarn is laceweight.

This was the yarn for the final summer sock club, but I won't be using the club pattern (it's not me), however it is perfect to be the sheep with the green yarn!

This is the one that won't be dyed again as Anna is stopping dyeing yarn.   It will be a cardigan of some kind.

This was bought for a specific sock pattern that calls for sport weight yarn and which I didn't already have anything suitable for.  I think it's called the Red Dwarf socks.

And this is another of Anna's, which is destined to be the weaving yarn that the Vintage Purls yarn decided wasn't right for it.
