I Just Had to Have It
Need I say more? I was thinking of making a Clapotis, but obviously the gauge would be off, and yardage would be off...and then Yarn Harlot said this was the stuff dreamy socks were made of...and I saw that Ms. Mintyfresh made a lovely pair of Pomatomus socks out of the same yarn. Could Pomatomus be in my future?
Koigu - ooooh! These are skeins that I just HAD to have. The celery color is Koigu KPM 4001, dye lot 13. The variegated is Koigu KPPPM 304, dye lot 56. I am not sure what I am going to make with them yet, but I do believe the KPPPM will turn into a pair of socks to match the boyfriend socks below.
Koigu for the hunky boyfriend. *sigh* Dreamy man, dreamy yarn. Koigu KPM 2410, dye lot 126.
Lorna's Lace's - never really saw her variegated stuff and this is quite lovely. It is called Sand Ridge, color 6717. Hunky boyfriend and I plan on returning to Bermuda this summer so I plan on making some Bermuda socks with this lovely yarn. (Bermuda socks, get it?!)
At last, I have Trekking in my stash! Thanks to Hila, I am now the proud owner of 2 skeins of this stuff. Bottom color is 101, top is color 105. I also ordered another skein which has more teal in it. I think we need to bump our sock club to a pair a week as opposed to a pair a month!
And to prove that I don't just stare at sock yarn, here is one completed Padded Footlet - unblocked, and too big for me. (They aren't for me so that is ok.)
Pattern is from Interweave Knits Summer 2005. I have really enjoyed making them for the most part, but honestly, next time I make a pair, I may skip the whole double stranded sole. It's a pain in the ass. Then again, I could change my mind tomorrow.
Woo hoo! My Lorna's Lace's self striping is finally making it's way into socks. I am whipping out these simple socks for my knitting group's sock event tonight. This yarn is so dreamy to work with. I am using size us1 which seems to be working well, I probably should have cast on a couple extra stitches. 64 stitches seems a tad tight, butwho knows, could be just right in the end.
And finally, the end of this long post, I show you my yarn horror. It didn't look like this on the computer screen when I ordered it. The colors looked soft and lovely. In fact, this picture doesn't really do justice to the vibrance of the purple. Yikes.
