Yarnapalooza Prize for All You Sockaholics

My Lovely Yarn Lady tells me that TOFUtsies is the hottest new sock yarn. It's made of wool, soysilk fibers, cotton and chitin which is fiber from shrimp and crab shells. Somehow this makes the yarn naturally antibacterial. The skein is 425 meters long so you get a nice pair of socks out of it.

The colors are so gorgeous that it almost (but not quite) tempts me to try knitting socks again.

So, whoever wins the Yarnapalooza prize tomorrow, July 10th, gets this prize from me. Barbara will let me know who the Random Number Generator chooses.

Ooooh! Tofutsies!

The proprietor of the local spinning/weaving shop sends out emails announcing new stuff. I got one Friday announcing that she has Tofutsies. I visited with her a good long while on Saturday, and now I have some Tofutsies, too. (And she let me use her printer to print out the clues for the mystery stole 3, and her swift and ballwinder, and I started knitting that stole there in her shop. And we talked yarn and needles, too.)

Cathy, it sounds like you had a lovely Saturday at the LYS! Send us pix of the mystery stole when you're done--I'd love to see it!
