A Yarn Tale


I'm preparing for January's start of Ravelry's Cookie A. Knit-A-Long.
We're knitting from her second sock book
Knit-Sock-Love

I'm hoping that the wonderful patterns from Cookie will show their glory with these lighter colors.
The Minty Green is Heritage by Cascade Yarns
Sock yarn 75% Merino Superwash Wool, 25% Nylon
The Yummy Pink right below the Minty is the very same yarn content and weight.

The Peachy Apricot
is Jojoland
Melody
100% wool Superwash

That'll be enough yarn to keep me happy for three pair of sox
[well, maybe]

This Luscious Lavenders is by
malabrigo
It's kettle dyed
sock weight
Merino Wool
Superwash which means, of course all four of these yarns can be machine washed.  Yipee ! ! ! !
I don't want to use any yarn this dark for my KAL sox but it is soooo soft against skin
that I decided as soon as I spied it that I'd work this into another scarf.
Come on Winter show us what you got!
I've got my malabrigo to keep me warm.

Haven't pick a scarf pattern yet.

Hubby's day-after check-up was this morning and everything is going very well.
I think he's happy with the results.

Happy Holiday Hugs

  1. Gerry - so glad about the 'day after' check up. I like the peachy yarn for me please.

    I'm trying one of Melody's eternity scarves in that blue/green self striping yarn. I'm not sure, I'm entirely happy with it yet. Jury is still out.

    Hugs - Marie

  3. That yarn is simply gorgeous. Glad I got to "touch" it a few weeks ago. So glad that everything is going very well for Ron. Can he tell a difference in how he sees things yet?

  4. I am delighted by the colors.

    I gave this blog a little tweet today. Hope you don't mind.

    Like the little saprrow with the big voice too.
