Hand-dyed, beautiful Hand-dyed

Well, the needles finally came. They are so pretty and shiny. I should start on the sleeves to the ladybug sweater now. Should.
I've been looking and looking at Blue Moon Fiber Arts WAAAAAAY to much. Everytime I go there I find a new colourway that I want, I must get to Toronto soon before I start spending money on shipping in addition to too much sock yarn. I finished the Rockin' Sock in Blue Moonstone last night and although it's beautiful, I think I prefer a short ribbed cuff followed by the stockinette in the leg rather that the ribbing all the way down. I do like the look of the short row/ hourglass heel though.
I'm almost done the back of the sweater I (finally) decided to make out of the GORGEOUS Artyarns supermerino. With only 4 hanks my options were pretty limited. I'm still a little worried that I won't have enough but we'll see. I'll do the sleeve next and if I have to dive into the third I'll have to frog it and try something else. I'm not good at this 'buy some yarn and decide later what to do with it' thing. I'm a buy yarn with a purpose kind of gal. I still buy a lot of yarn, but it's all spoken for.
And now, on with the day.
