Happy with a side of joy

My box from Twisted Fiber Art arrived the other day:

If I wasn't using some of it for my last test of the Escapist Shawl, I wouldn't know where to start, but as it is...

The rest is all for socks.

(speaking of which, I have a pair almost to the toes.  not to jinx myself or anything.) 

The base yarn for most of the box is superwash merino/cashmere/nylon and can I just say YUM?  because that's pretty much what I'm humming under my breath as I work my way through Clue #1.  Yum.  Yum-ola, and not because it's called Yummy - that's the sock yarn; this is fingering called Tasty - but because it is.  Highly, highly recommended.

Also recommended: buying new yarn when the going gets tough.  I did that on one of last week's toughest days and I hope to reap the rewards of same sometime next week, at which point I will reveal the extent of my good luck and brilliance-in-irresponsibility.

Less likely: casting it on for a project.  I seem to be a wee tad backlogged for some reason I choose not to think about.  But aren't we all?
