Major Yarn Porn Entry

I got bored at work, now you who read this will have to suffer like I have these past few hours, LUST with me. :D

So while surfing through knitting blogs, I found the Full Thread Ahead blog and attached store (Go here and check out the yarn colors ). [Note: they ship for $5 in the US and Canada....WOW] While looking through the yarns, I found this:
South West Trading Company Tofutsies - Yarn that is made of Chitin, Cotton, Soysilk, Wool. Upon further research at other yarn shops online, I found:
"This is the latest yarn from South West Trading, made from a mixture of yarns including their own brand Soysilk and Chitin (made from shrimp and crab shells, yes really!)
Our feedback so far is that they are hard wearing and soft at the same time.
As an aside, chitin extracted from crab and shrimp shells is compatible with human tissue and has been found to be useful to accelerate healing in wounds." From here.

And they come in GREAT colorways. All of the colorways have a form of foot in them. Is that not the cutest!??? I want: off of the right foot, one foot in front of the other, tender foot, and foot the bill to name a few. :D I think this may be the next thing I put in to the boy for. Like he'd buy it, but he never needs to know what my credit card does on the Internet without him. ^.^ <- Those are horns here :P

Next up we have:
The Great Adirondack Yarn Company Sierra in Plum Loco, this is reallly pretty. Check it out, it's Alpaca. mmmmmm
OH dear. They make sock yarn. *gasp* It's called Caribou and there's also Soxie. Google it, ebay it, love it, buy it. OMG. Oh and Silky Sock. Silk+sock=melty Pineapple, Antique, Cancun, Chili Peppers. MMMM. The colors alone make this yarn worth killing people to make money in order to buy. Oh, wait, I mean...ummm...

This sock yarn is on a brit. site, but still really pretty. The color is very vivid, per my screen at this moment.

And Sheep Shop Two Sheep bulky wool is really pretty too. I like color 043 best, but wouldn't you know, out of stock, damn.

Oh, a party in a skein, Fiesta Yarn's Watermark OOOHHH, AHHHH. ;D Jamacian Spice, my flava.

Ok I think this is enough, plus now I'm sad that I'm poor. I want to splurge and buy yarns mmmm yarns. NO! No yarns. It does not count that you just got a new credit card. No!

Enjoy.
