Yarn Porn

Saturday was a great mail day here as I recently went on an online yarn shopping spree :-)
sock-aholic sweet in sweet turquoise, sweet lavender & peach cobbler and   wollmeise pure merino superwash  in Erbse
madeline tosh merino light in volga, dream in color smooshy in flamingo pie & shalimar breathless in asilomar

dream in color smooshy in go go grassy

wollmeise pure merino superwash in Lila Ludmilla   
I've used Wollmeise once before - my boneyard shawl which I blogged about here. I have to say I love her colors. If you search around on ravelry you can find people destashing wollmeise more often these days. I highly recommend trying it. I've also used Shalimar Breathless before - also for a shawl:
And I have to say I LOVE this yarn! It's a blend of  75% Merino wool, 15% Cashmere & 10% Silk. It is super soft & feels heavenly both while you're knitting it & when you wear it.

Nothin' But A Hound Dog

And we have added to the family yet again.....
Hubster knowing I have always wanted a bloodhound decided to get me one for our anniversary. The pups weren't ready to go on our actual anniversary so we had to wait. There were 2 pups left when we went to pick out ours & the fellow told hubby he'd cut him a deal if we would take them both. I was having a hard time picking so we took the deal. :-))  So here are Jasmin & Jasper:
