Fiber Friday!

Fibernymph Bounce 80% merino/20% nylon; 400 yds. in the Vampire Kisses colorway! Gorgeous, smooshy and love, love, love it!

The Loopy Ewe order...some more Malabrigo (one can never have enough Malabrigo), Collinette Jitterbug sock yarn, and Lil Loopy is holding a cute stitch marker!
OMG when I opened the box for this order I about gagged from the stench! I didn't even take the time to look at the yarn but immediately stuck it in Wolfe Farms so it could soak up the scents from that. I don't know what they do with that Collinette yarn but will never, ever buy it again because of the smell. Someone mentioned on Plurk that it was their favorite sock yarn so thought I'd try do they knit with it? @hotazzknitter and @courtsgram (after I got it) said "oh yeah, that yarn really stinks!" Glad its not just me!:) My nose don't work that well either and for me to smell it, its really bad!
Have a great weekend and try to stay cool!
