Look what the mail man brought.... a wonderful package. I had entered a contest at The Spirit Trail and I was the fortunate winner of some hand dyed, in the colors I chose, 2 ply cashmere. It is so yummy. The colors are beautiful and it is so soft. Now to find a pattern as beautiful as the yarn that requires 500 yds. Thank you so much Jennifer It is so lovely. I just keep looking at it and touching it. I can't wait to knit with it.
I finished the pair of Wollmeise Socks I was knitting for Karen. They are not knit in Wollmeise but in Great Adirondack Soxie in the Beach House colorway. Her feet are shorter than mine, so the socks are stretched somewhat taut on my blockers. I knit the foot plain as I was worried about yardage. The Soxie is a 360 yd hank, and causes a little anxiety. This hank felt so much different from the first socks I knit with this yarn. The first hank was very similar to Cherry Tree Hill, this one, not so much. But still a pleasure to work with. I am pretty sure I would have run out of yarn if I had continued the pattern down the foot.
And I have made a little progress on the Neapolitan socks. This is a nice yarn to work with. I am anxious to see how it washes and wears. It is so soft. I love the way the colors worked up on the heel turn, almost makes me wish I had done a short row heel.
And earlier this week came the Louet Gems fingering wt from The Yarn Grove, they were having a Valentine's Day Sale last week: ) I think I will design a pair of men's socks with this yarn. The color is Linen Grey.
Well that is all for this week. I hope everyone has a great weekend filled with knitting and family fun!!
