More vicarious S-E-X

There aren't enough words to describe how much I love shopping at The Loopy Ewe. Sheri is awesome, her shipping is astonishingly fast, and the packages are so beautiful. I'm talking even before I get to the yarny center -- I'm talking about the tissue paper, the handwritten notes, the little sample cards.

And then you open up the package, and you find THIS.

Okay, I mean, I know I paid for all of this. But I have the short term memory of a fish ("Oh, look, a rock!...Oh, look, a rock!...Oh, look, a rock!"), so by the time the yarn arrives (even though I ordered these on Tuesday and they arrived today), I've forgotten that I spent money on them, and part of my brain just thinks that Sheri is my bestest pal in the whole wide world, sending me goodies.

And what goodies. The lighting in here sucks after dark (and before dark, but whatev), so you'll have to trust me that the Regia Silk is a deep, charcoaly blue, that the Regia Bamboo is one of the prettiest rainbow multicolors I've ever seen, and that the Yarn Pirate Quicksilver is just beyond compare. It doesn't really have that blue streak, I don't know where my camera found that. But. Wow.

I think the two Regia yarns are going to make the Entrelac Socks in the newest IK. Yes, I know their guages are likely to be differnet, and may make me insane. I don't care. If I can make it work, they will be exquisite. And if they don't work, well, I'll learn something else. :)

It's 10pm, and my brain feels like mush, so I'm going to be silly for a little bit and then collapse.

Oh, and for those of you who maybe haven't heard?
