I Lurve this bouncy sock yarn! Ellie at Crazy4Dyeing sent in several mini skeins of her jolly sock yarn custom dyed in "glacier" colorway- just for you lucky people who get January's box!

A little about her store:Crazy4Dyeing is a one-woman show and the brainchild of Ellie. A quilter for many years, she has come only lately to knitting and dyeing. Her experience with color served her well while designing and creating quilts, and now she puts those fine-tuned skills to good use while dyeing her unique colorways. A scientist by education, she fore goes formulas and note-taking while dyeing and lets serendipity rule the day. It all seems just a little crazy!

I can't tell you how much I *need* to get some of her yarn. She has a new "zestysock" base yarn I'm itching to stitch with- especially the "zoisa" colorway!I really love the jolly sock yarn base though. It has a nice twist is very soft and springy. Ellie has so much to offer in her shop, it would really be best to purchase her crazy as a loon sock club, that way you don't have to agonize over which ones to buy- unless you just like to do that sort of thing *wink*. I also love how she has several different base yarns to choose from. Her swankysock base yarn is a wool and sea cell blend! Ellie does more than sock yarn though! she'll be listing laceweight and Aran yarn soon and I for one, am holding my breath until she does! Crazy4Dyeing has a group on Ravelry too- so we can all talk about our latest projects with Ellie's yarn and remember- she does take color requests into consideration!
