    That is a heavenly sock match.

    What is it about a grand yarn festival that makes everyone want to buy yarn NOW? I’m with you and have read a few other blog posts this evening by people facing the same dilemma

    Totally jealous about the silk garden sock yarn! I want some! In the colorway that you got! Can I use any more exclamation points! Yes! I have knit up the kuryeon sock yarn and it is nice, but silk garden ! Wow. I hope my lys gets some soon! Thanks for sharing. Love the other sock color combo, too.

    I love kinokuniya! That reminds me that I need to go and take a look at their new books soon :) The noro silk garden sock yarn sounds very luxurious and yummy.

    Very nice. I have demonstrated utterly no restraint lately and am therefore trying to determine a strategy for the fiber fest that is Maryland Sheep & Wool — particularly because I am still working through last year’s acquisitions.

    I would love being able to spend a lot of time looking at crafty books and yarn. How fun! And yes, those colors are gorgeous together.

    Wow! Silk garden sock yarn! This is the most exciting news that I’ve heard all day. The socks that you are knitting look great.

  7. Melissa

    We have a Kinokuniya out here, and whenever I’m out in San Jose I make sure to stop by and peruse their craft books. The knitting and crochet books are amazing, especially their stitch patterns.

    I like the sock, the colors are nice together. (love that green!)

    That new sock is gorgeous! I love the colour combo you have chosen.

    Oh, Silk Garden sock yarn… my yarn diet is doomed! Thanks for the link, Lolly! :-)

  10. Nadia

    Wow! Those socks are going to be heavenly! I can’t wait to see them finished!

  13. margaux

    what a great trip! I must check out that bookstore now :-) such a great idea for the cross stitch motifs! brilliant! have fun at the MDSW festival this weekend!

  14. Jody

    I can’t wait to see what you do with those craft books! Great finds!

    Lovely train knitting! I love how those two colors are coming together. I always adore the color combos you choose though, they always sing. :)
    Nice job on the restraint! I agree that with MDSW coming up, it makes sense to play it safe. I’ll be sure to look for you there.
    The books look awesome. I can’t wait to see the 2009 Anniversary Sweater! :) I’m still working up the courage to knit VJ his second sweater! :)

    I had no idea there is Kinokuniya Bookstore in NY! I loved it last time I was in BKK – but just purchased some cookbooks!
    For a knitter and social networker, you really have some fun and a lot of exploring. Thanks you for sharing your adventures. I enjoy reading about them, really!

    Beautiful yarns & beautiful sock so far. I love the green & cream together. Very nice combination. Very springy & earthy, reminds me of grass emerging from the snows :D

    I don’t think that I would be able to contain myself yarn wise the way you did. Good will power! :)

  18. Nonnahs

    What a fun weekend you had- and another one coming up! And you’re right- those colors together are perfecto!

  19. Nicole

    Lovely stuff!

  20. Meghann

    SILK GARDEN SOCK!?! Seriously! Must. find. some. now.

  21. Jenna

    I mentioned there’s a Kinokuniya here, right? Further enticement…
    All of these purchases are just great and very unique – all of the best things about shopping in NYC! I do think it’s true – you put some in, you’ve gotta take some out (although I don’t know if a sock balances a cone).

    Next time, don’t forget the bagel!

  22. Goldie Axelrod

    I went to your blog right after you left, and entered a comment, but it seems not to have been received. I just wanted to say, that you can teach an old dog new tricks!
    I thoroughly enjoyed your blog, and will be reading it often.
    Goldie, at Gotta Knit!

    eek! I’m practically hyperventilating at the sight of that silk garden! It’s gorgeous!!!

    Yes, definitely a match made in heaven! LOVE IT!

    [...] I cast on for Francis Revisited, a top-down raglan sweater with an attached cowl neck(Ravelry project page and free pattern link here).  The pattern caught my eye on Ravelry earlier in the year.  It reminded me of a great red sweater that I had in college that I loved to death – I wore it often and it pilled like the Dickens in the wool/acrylic blend.  I almost cast on with one of the red yarns in my stash, but then I decided that this heathery green wool/alpaca/silk blend would workvery nicely.  And so far, it has!  This yarn was a cone of approximately 1100 yards of aran weight that I bought at School Products in New York earlier this summer.
