I've cast on with a new yarn - well, actually two - yes I know - but it is my job to test out new yarns. One of them is a merino/bamboo sock yarn - I will post a picture as soon as the swatch is done - it's so incredibly soft and cushy - lots of spring! Love it! And.........the other one is merino wool and something else - don't want to say but it's from (oops!) can't say that either but I will post a picture once it gets a bit bigger. The yarn comes with a pattern and it's really a fun one. There's about 75 skeins of it due to arrive in 4-6 weeks. Long wait, eh? But I promise, definitely worth it!
Oh and this yarn - it's Duets! Hand dyed yarn for the sock and a co-ordinating solid for the heel and toe! Pick Up Sticks is one of only three online sources! It's been sent already so by the end of next week at the latest it will be here!
