Oh, Suzanne -- How I love thee!!!!

No, no...I have not left the DH ::gg:: Suzanne isn't a woman in this instance, it's the colorway of my latest yarn obsession, WOLLMEISE! (you can click here for the direct like to the yarn portion of this site if you don't want to go through the front of the site -- but I LOVE the intro page that Claudia and her DH (an EXTREMELY talented iron work artist) share and wanted to share it with you as well! You can also click here for more KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF photos of this GORGEOUS yarn!)

Claudia is an absolute color GENIUS and one of the most humble and kind people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Here, have a peek at what I have been working with today :) You can decide for yourself about the colors:

And the sock I've begun for the DH -- just plain old generic -- based on Silver's Sock Class (which is FANTASTIC if you're new to socks, BTW! This tutorial is how I learned how to knit a couple of years ago and I have never looked back!! Silver is a GREAT teacher!!)

I will warn you -- this yarn is incredibly popular right now and it's VERY hard to get your hands on. It sells out within minutes of being added to the site, so if you want to get your hands on some, you're going to have to be very quick in order to beat ME :) But it is so worth it!! I can't even begin to tell you how fantastic is feels!

Not only are the colors mind-blowing -- it's AWESOME yarn too! I almost don't want to give them away! I just may have to borrow them sometime ;)
