Yarn, I've new Yarn ! ! !

The Loopy Ewe Ravelry Group is having a
4th Quarter Challenge
*  *  *  *  *
The Challenge:
" You can knit anything you’d like, 
as long as it uses at least one full skein of Madelinetosh
in any of the Tosh yarn bases that we carry at The Loopy Ewe 
(Sock, Merino Light, Vintage, Sport, DK and Pashmina). 
You can knit up more than one skein in your project, 
but not any less than a full skein."

My 4th Quarter Challenge yarn order from 
arrived ! ! ! 

I Love It ! ! ! 

Before I show you

Let me explain,
 one of the perks of shopping online at The Loopy Ewe
is that after your fifth order one becomes a 'Loopy Groupie'
and all the perks that go along with it.

This order put me over the top ! ! !

  1. I love the Tomato! Don't you just love yarn names? Yes, now you have to finish the shawl because you said it and I would love to see it! I love that you're a Loopie Groupie! xx

  2. No, I won't tell on you if you cast on with one of your gorgeous new yarns! :-) The Stacy Shawl will still be there!

  3. Great bag, great patterns, great yarn!

  4. What fun. I sure wish I knew how to knit up a pair of socks. I would have picked the same color too. I've always wanted to order from Loopy and I just may have to get some goodies there when I get back to the garden.

  5. Can't wait to see your next shawl--the Stacy Shawl. Your new yarns will be such fun to knit with.

  6. Your excitement about The Loopy Ewe transcends your writing here. I'm excited and want to order something too! Love that Lacy Pillar Sock! Hugs, Annette

  7. I love the blue/green/teal. Beautiful colors and a neat goodie bag.

  8. You have way more self control than I do if you finish your shawl before playing with your new goodies, LOL!

  9. I would not blame you one bit if you put down the shawl and worked with these new beautiful yarns.
    Your excitement show through your writing which I love and so glad I stopped by tonight.
    Also I love the old pictures of your grandchildren.
    Have fun with your new goodies

  10. You do have loads of yarn!!! My dear DIL , The Latin Lovin' Hillbilly, knits socks but she's tired of the color by the time she finishes one so she has many beautiful mismatched socks!!! Heeehehehe....

    Sweetie, I just wanted to thank you for poppin' over with your sweet comment and hoppin' on my blog. I sure hope ya enjoy the ride!!!

    God bless and in the words of that silly old Granny Clampett, "ya'll come back now...ya hear!!! :o)
