Have you guys listened to the latest Lime ‘n Violet podcast (episode #36)? Me and Elem are mentioned! We bought them 2 skeins of wonderful Wollmeise sock yarn and they loved it. They even said that Sherry from the Loopy Ewe should carry it! Wow, what a compliment. Claudia (wollmeise) are you ready to be bombarded with orders? Because you will be!!! They had a hilarious time trying to pronounce Elem’s name. It is hard. So that’s why I say “elem” and not “elemmaciltur”. It’s hilarious, go listen to it!
I also want to add that they didn’t mention fabz at all!!! She also sent them some Wollmeise yarn around the same time, and they mentioned the yarn and the chocolates, but not her!!! So I want to let you know that she sent them the Raku Regenbogen and Miss May as well as the chocolates. I’m guessing that because they probably arrived around the same time, they thought it was one package? Or something like that? Or maybe they just plain forgot. Oh well. I’m sorry fabz!!!
In knitting news, I finished one side of Vinnland and I’m so glad that I decided to frog the first one I made. The fit now is awesome!!! The pattern makes it really stretchy and fits well around my ankle – I didn’t make it too high. It is a tad too long in the foot, but I just pull it up and it fits fine. I’m working on the 2nd sock now.
I gotta start with my charity knitting. I had all these plans…but…so many nice yarns…have to cast on…must…resist.
My parents are coming in two weeks (from the US) and they are bringing a boatload of yarn that I ordered and to save on shipping, had it sent to them. A BOATLOAD. I have some CTH millends, Hello Yarn, Vesper, Lisa Souza, Socks that Rock, Spritely Goods, Fleece Artist, Hobbledehoy, Madeline Tosh, Noro, Knitpicks, a couple of stitch pattern books, and I’m probably forgetting some. Ack, now that I have it all written down…geez…I went overboard. So get ready for some yarn porn in June!

*LOL* @ L&V
BTW, I left them a comment on the podcast site about the fact that Ms. May and Raku-Regenbogen are from Fabz.
I see that you joined the Stalk LnV Ring. ;-)

Between your yarn, and stuff for the kids? Hope that they bring something for themselves to wear! Seriously, have a great time with your folks visiting. MÃ¼nchen and surround area has such great places to visit.

I am going to listen to the podcast in a moment :)
I hope your parents won’t get hit for taxes at the airport then… If they use commercial flights and go through regular customs then they’re not allowed to import more than 175 EUR worth of stuff… and not at the American prices, but at what customs estimates the value of things would be here in Europe… it is not just the wool that would be taken into account but anything they bring with them (CDs, DVDs, stuff for the kiddos and so on). I know from experience that it is cheaper for me to mail the stuff to myself. If it is mailed by a private person, you normally don’t get hit by taxes (at least I in Lux don’t). If it is mailed by a shop then it is a 50-50 chance that you get hit…

so i am actually taking the fact that i wasn’t mentioned in the podcast as a good omen, because guess what, the package i sent my mother on March 20th arrived yesterday (May 16th) in california. i think it’s all related, the wollmeise mojo had to work on that package to get to l+v and my mom’s wollmeise scarf arrived the same day the podcast came out! *smile*

Well– it was just a matter of time before the world discovered Wollmeise. Her colors are fab– and both you and Elemmaciltur have knit gorgeous items from her yarn. I loved your Gothic Spires– and Elem’s Chocolate river (Amazon)socks!

I had a dream that the Loopy Ewe started carrying Wollmeise last night! lol
Oh, and I’ve adopted your nickname for Elem as well. Mostly because I’m lazy. :D
Can’t wait to see how the Vinnlands are coming along.

I emailed Claudia last night and warned her of the coming onslaught of orders…poor lady, she’s a tad stressed out with her market appearances (there’s one tomorrow) and all the dyeing. But I think she’s happy that the business is booming. :-)
Maybe we should start a “I stalk the Wollmeise” webring. *LOL*

I’m behind in listening to my L&V podcasts, but hurrah for you and Elem and Fabz. I could have sworn that they mentioned Claudia’s yarn as a result of seeing some of the Yarnissima’s socks around flickr, but I don’t remember.
I can’t wait to see what your parents are toting over there. That yarn list looks pretty freggin’ amazing.
