All finished with Mark's socks. I was hoping there would be enough to make matching socks for his son, my nephew, Liam, but the skein wasn't big enough.
I do not like how difficult it is to photograph this color though, it's hard to get it clear. I did like knitting with this yarn though.
Yarn: Knit Picks Hawthorne Color: Forest Park Content: 80% Superwash Fine Highland Wool, 20% Polyamide (Nylon) Care: Machine Wash and Dry Needles: US 1 Size: US Mens 11 Pattern: None, just my own toe-up sock. Did use my new toe though. I am still refining it, but I really like how this one worked out.
I say last because even though it's pretty, I cannot justify the cost right now. Plus getting it just made me want to dye up my own fiber. I already prepped it for spinning and I'm sure it will be lovely. I love the peachy color in it.
This was my last attempt to do a swap, I have been burned too many times on these and this was my last ditch effort. Luckily it turned out wonderful!
Here is what I sent out:
The yarn is fingering weight 75% Superwash Merino and 25% Nylon. It's self-striping, 4 rows pink, 6-8 rows variegated pink, white, purple, and black, 4 rows purple, and then 6-8 rows variegated pink, white, purple, and black.
The fiber is just some small bundles of random wool, they were dyed in some of the remainder of the dye from the yarn.
Here is what I received:
Halloween inspired yarn, 75% Superwash Merino and 25% Nylon
Orange bit was sent as a coordinating color.
She sent a second skein of Rainbow inspired yarn, 70% Superwash BFL, 20% Silk, and 10% Cashmere. I'm thinking a hat or part of a shawl.
She also sent this needle keeper which is interesting.
Here is what I am making with the Halloween color:
I am making some Lazy Cable Fingerless Mitts for one of my niece's for Christmas. Not using a pattern, just figuring it out as I go. Had to do some ripping back a couple times, but overall I think it is going well. Knit on US 1.
