yippee! i came home today to find a package i’ve been wanting for quite some time. behold, the stripey goodness of vesper sock yarn

Vesper Sock Yarn 2

…in the colouway “love stinks, yeah, yeah” and “oh, lollipop”

this package could not have come at a better time as i had a royally craptastic day. anyway, i’ve been wanting to try this self striping yarn for quite a while. i’m completely enamoured with any variegated yarn that includes both red and pink, so the love stinks colourway immediately attracted me. i’d been stalking the knitterly things site in hopes that it would reappear for quite a while and was thrilled when it was offered again last week. and, well, if i’m going to pay for shipping, i may as well buy more than one skein, right? thus the luscious oh lollipop orange beauty.

i think both are destined to become basic fun striped socks. the coveted love stinks will be saved for the plane ride to LA when i visit jess. yay for pretty yarn on a bad day!
