A little while ago I hosted a giveaway on the blog, offering up a skein of Candy Skein yarn to the lucky winner. Of course, I couldn't order yarn from Tami without getting some for myself!
I had as much trouble as my giveaway entrants did, deciding which colours I wanted! I also had to be careful to make sure I already had a project in mind for the yarn - if I started buying yarn simply because I liked it I would soon be drowning in stash, and we don't have the space for that here!
I've been wanting to knit Koolhaas for a while, and since it calls for worsted weight yarn, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to actually get my hands on something in a worsted weight. After much deliberation, I went for this:

I expect at this point, you are congratulating me on my self control. Only ordering one skein of yarn for myself? Well, I didn't quite manage that level of restraint. I ordered two.

It's the January 2012 Sock Yarn Club Colourway! I just love this blue, it was a perfect choice by Tami for her January colour. As I was ordering my yarn in the right month, I had to get a skein. I don't know what it will become yet. It may even become my first pair of socks, if I ever find myself wanting to knit socks.
I have to say, the Midnight Mousse colourway chosen by my giveaway winner is absolutely fantastic. The photos just don't do it justice. No wonder it is so popular!
