Eye Candy Friday



I'm not real big on the "look at the yarn I bought" kinda posts but I had to share this stunning yarn I just acquired...

And why did this yarn speak so loudly to me, besides being drawn in by it's obvious beauty? Check the name...


KOI, VEY! :)

My love of all things Koi is well documented here at Blog de Fluffy and when I saw the name of this gorgeous yarn I knew it had to be mine!


This is my first time seeing (sniffing, petting, fondling) Urban Gypz yarn and it's super yummy! Really, really soft superwash merino and TONS of yarndage - 560 yards to be exact! Gorgeous and economical, what more can a girl ask for? Suberb and super fast shipping yarn pr0n merchant
here :)


Have a great weekend and try to keep cool!

The name is enough to sell it! The colors and fabulousness are the bonus in this case.

Oooo, I hadn't heard of that yarn before. Those colors are look like they'll make some fantastic socks for the winter gray days!

I think I'll take you up on your sock mentoring offer sometime soon. :) You'll be my sock "yoda" so to speak.

For now I think I'll become obsessed with knitting purses. :)

Gorgeous yarn by the way!

Oh, I love to see what others have purchased! It's part of the fun of visiting blogs I think. It's like buying vicariously through others. ; ) It is beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Karen

I am always a big fan of "look at the yarn I bought", and really excited about the new yarns you introduce. You could dedicate a whole blog site to Fluffy Picks and Pans.

My husband, not so much with the glad...

Unfortunately, I tend to discount the non-knitter comments.

Dee said...

That is gorgeous! I can't wait to see the socks you make with this! Another scrolls maybe? You certainly can have any pattern you like with yardage like that.

This yarn is amazingly beautiful - what an awesome colorway, and I so love the name!

Awe, I love all those colors. I can't wait to see the socks it'll knit up into!
