Acts of Knitting and Nerdery

About a week ago I spotted a sale at Craftsy that I could not resist. Fyberspates Scrumptious Chunky yarn, which normally retails at somewhere around $23 per skein, was 43% off. I couldn’t pass that up. I bought four in the Cherry color.

This yarn is a luscious, butter soft silk/merino blend that practically purrs when I pet it. The silk also gives the deep red a gorgeous sheen. This stuff is luxurious to say the least.

So. Freaking. SOFT.

It arrived at the office today and I squee’d and made my co-workers (who were looking at me funny) pet it. Then they squee’d a little too because did I mention it’s super soft?

I can’t wait to get it on some needles. I have my eye on the Dorflinger Tee.

Of course, I have plenty of other projects I want to make, too, so I’m not sure when I’ll get around to it, but I have a feeling that I won’t be able to resist it for long.

P.S. The sale is still on as of 11:30pm Central on 9/27/12. It has a 5-star rating at Ravelry, hard to beat that!
