Oops I Did It Again

I was out of town last weekend, and I bought some... um... yarn. Sock yarn. 3 pairs worth. DOH!

Left to right:

Claudia Handpainted sock yarn in Chocolate Cherry.
Claudia Handpainted in Earth Dot.
Fortissima Colori Socka Color DISCO - it SPARKLES.

YAY! Sock yarn!

The BF is so cool. Listen to this:

He willingly took me to the yarn store.

He picked up the Earth Dot with no prompting from me, and said, "I'd like to see how this will knit up..."

Then he offered to buy the yarn for me.

Yep, he's a keeper.

IN MY DEFENSE, I went to Village Wools today to fondle the Koigu and I DIDN'T BUY ANY. See? I'm only vulnerable when I'm traveling, apparently...

i can totally understand that feeling! isn't it funny that there are other people in the world who react to knitting, yarn, and socks like us? i'm continually amazed! i just finished some jaywalker socks in Koigu--dang they're soft! Have you tried Lorna's Laces?

I love Claudia's yarn. I am so jealous!

I know this is old news by now but I'm curious if you knit up the Earth Dot and how it came out; I'm trying to find a pattern that will work nicely with it - it's kind of unusual. What did you do?
