It's raining Trenna yarn!

It's raining Schaefer Trenna yarn at my house and I don't want to come in out of the rain!
Michael and I went on an anniversary retreat this weekend to our favorite B&B (Spring Street Inn) in Hot Springs, AR. I had saved my lovely hand made soaps for this special occasion. I can honestly say that I am addicted to the Lavender Ylang/ylang soap. What a wonderful smell and a perfect soap for a weekend of pampering! Thanks Denise!
I came home to a package from another friend/knitter/encourager. Two skeins of Trenna yarn. I just swooned over them! I won't say who it was, but you know who you are and I thank you soooooooo much, from the bottom of my yarn tangled heart!!!
I have no idea what the name of this colorway is, but I love it! It is very Kay! It has olive green, taupe, salmon, terracotta and smoky pink. Yum!
This colorway is Jane Addams. It reminds me of a garden of roses.
Then today my UPS man came bringing my Little Knits order for my remake of Ozark Autumn.
It is slightly different than the yarn I used for the model. This has some celery, gold, terracotta, coral, clay, bronze and warm coral red. I love it! The beads that I ordered may not go with it, but maybe I will just not do beads.
Here is a sneak peak of Arkansas Diamonds! I am using a lovely iridescent silver-lined crystal bead on this one. The yarn I am using is Jaggerspun Zephyr in the color Snow. I know you can't tell much, but wait until I block it!!!!!
Knitting Progress--One baby sock! Yep, that's all folks. I am hoping to make good progress on Arkansas Diamonds. With my Little Knits order, I got another skein of the Jojoland sock yarn, now I will be able to finish my Rectangular Leaf Shawl. The more I use this yarn, the more I like it. The slow variegation of color is just a visual joy to knit with! If you get a chance or if you are an avid sock knitter, try this yarn! You will love it! I can't wait to block it!
