Well I actually received this the day before Christmas, when Christy was here, and these pictures have been patiently waiting in my camera since then. Of course I was having fun with Christy and getting ready for Christmas and then I was doing the same thing and getting ready for New Years. Then we had to return Christy. (((sigh)))
And then I had to go and get a joint capsule tear in my right foot and my foot swelled up like a balloon and I couldn't walk on it and I felt like... um... not doing anything. (Trying to be polite)
I was able to put my shoe on again Wednesday and it feels pretty good today ( Thursday) as long as I am careful. Still using Jon's cane to walk to remind me to go slow so I don't injure it again. Sheesh.
So finally, no more excuses, this is what I bought from Kitchen Sink Dyeworks. I followed a link on Knitter's Review. Somehow I couldn't resist. You understand how it is. It was on sale as an "Odd Duck" which means only a few of that dye way left. Just these two, in fact.
I have been able to use some thicker socks lately (thanks Jeni) and thought maybe I could make a pair with this wonderful blended aqua color of superwash sock/fingering weight yarn.
It is 75% superwash wool and 25% nylon.
It came wrapped in this beautiful matching tissue with a ribbon and a button. Too cute!
worsted weight yarn called Seacell Merino which was as soft as a cloud and looks like it would really hold a nice pattern. It is really yummy.
So when we go back to Clifford I will have to pick up my needles and look for a sock pattern in my books. I know I have tons of them. I won't let Alice help though. She seems to want to eat it.
