Procrastinating on T-day prep

Got my little post office slip last night and headed to the post office this morning. I ended up opting out of orderng a murder of Ravens from BMFA and getting more Wollmeise. Check out her fun new paper packaging. It's got German/English knitting vocabulary. I may not be able to pronounce anything, but I can at least read a few words now.

My first 80/20 sock yarn in Spice Market medium intensity. It will be fun to knit this up and compare to the regular sockenwolle.

And just 'cause I like the colorway, I got Brombeere medium weight in the regular sockenwolle.

Missed out on the Pfeferrminz Prinz dark laceweight (and for that matter, the medium intensity), so ended up with the Pfauenauge. It is gorgeous and smells so lovely.

The monkeys love this bundle of test skeins (worsted weight medium intensity). Monkey1 grabbed the Dornroschen right off the bat, so I need to snag it back from her ASAP.

Ooooooh, look at all that Woolmeise! I'm loving that Brombere, too, so I can hardly wait to see it in person!

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous, and I'm picturing jumping into the pile of yarns like I did the piles of leaves when I was a kid.
