Did you know Brittany makes double points? Yes! They do! Like buttah.

Okay, so that super-secret package that came in the mail? I'm test-knitting Hill Country Yarn's Instant Gratification sock yarn in the color "Happy," which is exactly what I have been since the moment I touched the stuff. The hand dyed colors are rich and vibrant and the yarn is so nice and soft.

To prove to the yarn my intentions were pure, I immediately wound it into balls and swatched it. I'm getting about 6 stitches to the inch on my brand-new Brittany #4s.

We're so very much in love, this yarn and I.

Yes, I feel the love. I know what you mean. Last night, I pulled out some Socks that Rock just to pet it for a couple minutes. Mmmmm.... yarn.....

Did you get some of those needles?? Oh, please let me touch them at the next klatch. I'd love some birch needles. I want some with a fancy turned end. It will make me feel like a REAL knitter. By the way, I will never let my husband keep me from klatch again, whether or not you do the gansta thing.

Yes I DID get the needles, and they're fantastic. Would you believe they were only $6.95 for a set of five???
