Look I what I got in the mail

Hi there, I told you a while back that I’m part of a sock yarn club run by Jalaa Spiro of Knitcircus. It’s her gradient sock yarn club and I have knit 3 pairs of socks using her yarns so far.

Well now I recently received my latest package and thought I’d share that with you

IMG_2973 IMG_2972  Isn’t that yarn just gorgeous? A warm red to soft red to soft yellow/green, to a sort of sea green to turquoise to blue. That’s how I see the colors now as I look at the yarn cake. Maybe the impression will be different once I have knit it up into socks. As always, Jalaa includes ideas for patterns for her yarn and usually those are simple patterns as plain patterns are best for showing off this magical gradient dyeing. I haven’t chosen my pattern yet but I may just do a simple knit stitch with an afterthought heel. That will make for a therapeutic knit which is what I need at the moment.

Jalaa also includes a little accessory with her yarn. So far I have gotten stitch markers, a tape measure and now this gorgeous felt pouch  IMG_2971This is handmade in Nepal by Frabjous Fibers and it is GORGEOUS.

Well, that’s all for today. Take care and enjoy your crafting. Until next time 🙂
