A nice surprise made it's way to my doorstep all the way from Norway. It's my Hot Socks Swap!
I would like to try the Banana Blossom Lace socks by Maia with this yarn. It's hard to see, but there are spots of bright color scattered through this yarn like confetti. Very fun! My pal even sent a bonus ball of yarn and a very rich and delicious chocolate. Thank you very much.
I also received this in the mail:
It is Socks that Rock, lightweight, color Lagoon.
After I finished knitting my Titania Butterfly socks, I was discussing them with my husband and got him to try them on. He was very impressed with the yarn's softness and comfort. I have yet to knit him socks out of yarn of this quality, preferring to save it for myself. Well, it's time to fix this. We went online and he picked this color himself. Given the roll call I showed you yesterday, he's going to have to wait a bit.
I really like the way the yarn echoes the colors in the grey rock and the green moss. It's too bad I have to use a flash, but I'm afraid it will likely be this way for a little while. Were in the dark days here in Canada and I don't get home before the daylight is gone. I just can't limit my picture taking to the weekends. If anyone has helpful suggestions for lighting my yarn in the dark of winter, I'd be grateful.
