More Mannings
Koigu, # 1008

While at the Mannings booth there was a woman standing next to me, and someone went pushing behind us, and pushed the woman into the big wall of koigu. She made a "hrmph" noise and glared at the pusher (because really, it's MDS&W, there's no call for shoving!) and I said "Well, there are worse things to be shoved into, I suppose." The woman stepped back, and realized she'd been pushed into a big wall of koigu and agreed it could be worse.

    You could almost think my screen was adjusted with too much blue...but now, that's just a lot of blues, purples, and greys that you bought! Yay! Sheep and Wool! Good luck on finals!

    Great haul! You outdid us! :) I am looking forward to the vest with that yarn. I fell in love with their yarn last year. :) Good luck with your finals!

    Thanks for the awesome pictures! I really like that Tussah silk/merino blend and (of course) the Tess designer yarn!

    Wow! What a great haul you have -- lots of sock knitting in your future? I'm having a lot of fun thinking of designs and yarn for the next pair of socks I'll be knitting and these socks are for YOU!
