Hey! Someone paid the DSL bill! I'm back with PICTURES. Crappy pictures, but pictures nevertheless. First up, NEW YARN!
On the far right and far left, Mission Falls "1824 Wool." I'm sure 95% of you know all about this yarn but for the 5% of you that don't, this is a worsted weight superwash wool, 85 yards. I bought two balls of each color and will be turning these into little people socks for Dulaan.
Next to the purple Mission Falls is Fearless Fibers worsted weight 100% merino wool, also slated for socks for Dulaan. And next to the blue Mission Falls is a yarn I purchsed on Etsy from Marble Head Hand Dyed. It's 250 yards of sportweight merino. My plan to buy up all the sportweight sock yarn in the entire world is coming along nicely. In fact ...
More sportweight yarn! I did not know Claudia's did a sportweight yarn, but lookee! They do! This colorway is "Purple Earth". 225 yards of 100% merino. Notice Andy's artful RE-arrangement at the right end.
It's all about the little people socks around here. This is the Mini-Basketweave Toddler's sock (I'm quite sure I got the title wrong there) in Rowan's Cashsoft Aran. This is my new favorite worsted weight yarn and I absolutely love the way these tiny socks turned out. The yarn was an absolute joy to work with. Yes, it's a bit pricey for charity knitting but what the heck.
And finally, a pair of "Rattie" sock blockers. I've wanted a pair of sock blockers for a while and I'm very pleased with these. Too bad they didn't have goat sock blockers.
Tomorrow an update on Victor's latest setback. Suffice to say, I'm going to be installing an ATM machine in his stable.
