an apology; some new colorways

new sock yarns

an apology

So I've been a little missing-in-action lately. Oh, no, it's been a lot of MIA. I hardly feel that it's worth boring you with the ends and outs of my excuses for neglecting this blog, this poor little blog that's brought me so much joy. So maybe I'll just quickly sum it all up for you: I'm getting married in less than a month.

Wedding planning certainly is challenging, but it's also fun. I'm trying to keep thinking of the fun, but sometimes it's difficult to, especially when everything is more expensive than you ever imagined and when your vendors have to cancel on you.

Fun: Manly and I picking out our wedding bands yesterday. Not fun: learning how much they cost. We keep telling ourselves that we'll pay for everything after the wedding. I'm sure that the fact that we're both nauseated all of the time has something to do with our getting married! Of course, we're happy and excited, and we know that it will all be worth it in the end; for now, however, we're a little spastic.

So, I guess I just want to say that I'm sorry for neglecting this blog and for not reading and commenting on all of your blogs. It's something that I'm really looking forward to doing again.

some new colorways

In the photo above, you can see the colorways that have been shipped off to the Loopy Ewe. Lots of these are new colorways for me. These skeins are my yeah oh yeah sock, a 100% superwash merino that's similar to my Meanie sock yarn base. Starting at 12 o'clock and moving clockwise, the colors are: prissie, sherbet, chocolate creme egg (think Cadbury Creme eggs), bluebird, cherry blossom, la mer, nymphwood, cherry bud, tea rose, pink lemonade, fishing with my father, and veggie.

If you want a skein of the bluebird or pink lemonade in my Meanie base, head on over to my etsy shop.

Those are stunning new colorways! I'm going to have to have my A game on when watching for them during the sneak-ups, as they're sure to go fast!

Don't worry about keeping up - you are super busy these days. I don't know what my excuse is for not keeping up, lol... : )

Hooray! It's so good to hear you are still alive and kicking. I feel for you on the wedding stuff. Keep going strong and remember to enjoy every minute!! The best piece of advice that I got (well...there were many but this one is important) is that if you are having a dinner dance kind of reception, remember to take some time in the middle of the evening when everyone is having fun and pulling you and your groom this way and that to find eachother, go out on the dancefloor and have at least one slow dance together (aside from the "first dance"). It's your night afterall.
And finally, remember to breathe. :D
Gorgeous colourways! I'm so happy to see you are still dyeing yarn. Time for me to pay off some of the credit so I can snatch some up for myself. I LOVE my Neopolitan socks!!! Take care,
p.s. Damn the blog! You know we'll still be here when you are done celebrating with Manly!! Just have fun! :D

All the headaches will be worth it! It seems like there are always things that don't go right, but things almost always turn out perfect in the end. Enjoy it, someday it will be a fond memory you talk with your kids about. Our kids love hearing about the day we got married.

I love your new colors!
