Yarn Lust

I have a serious case of yarn fever...... I stalked the Loopy Ewe all day yesterday, and while I was gone to guild, they put up the Wollmeise and sold all 300+ skeins in 4-5 minutes! So of course, I had to go to the Wollmeise herself, Claudia, and setup a shopping list on her site.

I'm also falling in love with about 15 different colorways of Trekking XXL and Dream in Color, and have loads of it on my Loopy Ewe wishlist. I also want to get my dyes out again. I have two cones of Ashford fingering weight waiting to be dyed, but I'd like to find a new sock yarn base. (Any suggestions?) I did just receive some sock yarn blanks from KnitPicks to play around with.

I think all them stems from being chained to my lecture CDs and books for the CPA exam. I sit for one section next week, and then I'm taking a 2 or 3 week break before I buckle down for the next section. In that break we'll celebrate Sweetpea's 3rd birthday, and get Monkeyboy in Kindergarden, which will change our whole morning routine.

Have a great exam!
I had no idea that Trekking was so popular, I guess I should give it a try.....
