That said, let's begin with a sulky "what kind of sock club sends you just yarn and no swag!!!!????" *sigh*
I guess you can tell both of my sock club shipments arrived.
I 'm not really that impressed with the Madeline Tosh. It's variegated, it's called WaterLily, and it's very pastelly. Kinda ho-hum (of course, that could be me sulking because there wasn't so much as a Hershey's kiss, or stitch marker included, not even a note about inspiration for the color choices, and need I mention that the January shipment arrived on February 2nd!!!!). I'll be interested to see how it stripes. I do have to say it is soft and warm, and it will make a comfy pair of socks.
The ZenString yarn is not quite as soft, but the colors are divine (at least this one sent a fridge magnet - advertising her business *sigh*). The colors are very deep, lots of purple, blue and green. It's called Madame Butterfly.
Unfortunately, I can't find my camera right now or else I would post pics. They are both actually quite nice, it's just that when I talk to K about her sock clubs, I turn green. I totally missed on the Deadly Spins, and they aren't doing it this year!!!
I think i'll just sit here and work on my Biker Boy Cardi (whine, whine, pout).
