I read (or rather, listened to as an audiobook) Neil Gaiman's Coraline a while back - it was guaranteed entertainment, as Gaiman always is. Today, I came across Wendy's post about her surprise gift.

Ended up finding some keycodes to the Coraline stopmotion movie page.

It looks A.W.E.S.O.M.E.

Sock yarn doesn't count!

Now, everyone **knows** sockyarn doesn't really count in your stash, so technically my stash did NOT just grow by 7 skeins of lovely Danish merino-blend...

[Ravelry-link for the yarn]

210m/50g skein, 30 sts/10cm, bought from about 22,13 NOK per skein + postage. Thinking of Frankensocks from Fall08 Knitty or some such ^_^
