Sonny & Shear order arrived on Thursday!!

My sis Fleas got me a gift certificate to .

I've been wanting to order from them for a while because they are located in Florida and I love to support local businesses. I've had some communication with Kris and others and they have always been so nice. I emailed Kris before I ordered to find out if new yarn was coming and she responded pretty quickly.

So, I was very excited to order and it took me a couple days to decide on colors and yarn I wanted. I knew it would be all sock yarn but there were quite a few choices to make and I don't make many choices quickly. :)

When I finally did order it came pretty quickly. When the box got here it was all nicely wrapped in plastic bags with ribbon. It was really cute because there was a hand written note, a sample skein of sock yarn, and two bags of tea. I thought that was great and such a person touch.

OK...now here's the whole order...


1 Skein of Hazel Knits in Plum Glace.


2 skeins of Shibui Knits in the color Bark. I love these!! They're for a special, secret project you will have to wait for. 2 skeins of Shuibui knits Spectrum. I've been eying this color way for a while and finally took the plunge. :)
And this is the cute little sample of Chewy Spaghetti that I plan to make a mini sock out of for my sock blocker keychain. :)
Well, hope you enjoyed the lovely yarn pictures. I would highly recommend ordering from them. It's a great company and hey it's nice to support a local Florida company!!

Happy Yarn Shopping!!

  11. I love the brown color, was that Bark??? I have to get me some of that, it's calling out my name big time. And that's odd since I am usually a PINK girl. LOL
