My latest sock yarn acquisition - Indigo Moon fingering sock yarn in Rhapsody.

Rhapsody - exactly what I was feeling when I handed over my credit card. You should see some of the other new colours. I am lusting after 2 semi-solids - Sorbet (the perfect pink) and Apricot (a beautiful goldy-yellow).

And I was spoiled by a quilting friend (she knits, too) who just returned from a trip to her home state of Nebraska...

The fabric designer really knows their knitting gear because I swear those are Brittany Birch needles and crochet hooks.

Now that I've finished my Monkey socks, I want to start another pair of Monkeys. This time I'm going to use a solid or almost solid colour. I just can't decide which one. I have some Sweetgeorgia in Blue Steel and Cassis. I could use purple Koigu KPPPM. Maybe Cherry Tree Hill in Moody Blues? Sigh... Too many choices!

Rhapsody is pretty! I don't think I've ever seen Indigo Moon yarn before. Nice!

The Indigo Moon takes my breath away , it is so beautiful, how is the nightie going ? I knitted purple monkey soocks for my swap pal , and they were the hardest things I have knitted for a long time. My eyes didn't recognise the colour and I had to watch every torment for a knitter, but your eyes are a lot younger than mine .....aaahh!
