Look what I got!

I got home to a notice saying I'd missed a package today, and I went to the post office to see if they'd gotten the package in there yet.

They had! It's my order from Pick Up Sticks. I have to say that I was EXTREMELY impressed with the quick service from them. I placed my order at around 7pm, and by 9am her time, the package was already in the mail, and it had a tracking number.

I'd like to present to you 2 Duet Sock yarns.

This one reminds me of Neapolitan ice cream.

The front one reminds me of chocolate covered cherries.

The little hanks of brown yarn are for the heels and toes, and has several shades of brown in it. And is just gorgeous!

They also included 2 sample packages of Soak wool wash. I've been wanting to try this.

I really cannot wait to start knitting with this yarn. It is delightfully soft, and is 100% merino.

...and in the DK weight, I could have a finished pair of socks by the end of the weekend!

I resisted the Duet yarn so I'm curious to see how it knits up. Pick up Sticks is great though. Super fast shipping! I ordered Thursday evening (around 6pm) and my package arrived Monday afternoon.

Oh so pretty!!! I saw that yarn, but made myself click off the page without ordering any. I'm regretting it now. :)
