Yeah, that's right! I'm working on my first pair ever, and after i finish the one, he decided that he wanted to steal them. I'm using pretty expensive yarn (Austerrmann Step), i only got because i had a gift certificate. Of course, i didn't want to give them up! After looking at what seemed like a million skeins of hand painted yarn on Etsy.com, we didn't see anything he liked. It's not often he asks me to knit him something, so i wanted it to be special. I found a seller who sells tons of undyed natural fiber at the lowest prices i've ever seen. Stickchick had exactly what we needed!!!
Dye Your Own 100% Merino wool Superwash fingering wt. sock yarn in natural cream. Lovely and soft, this yarn is absolutely perfect for socks!
2 oz skein/approx 280 yards
I can't wait to get it!!! I'll post right away to let everyone know how it looks/feels/smells :-)
I'm a little more than halfway through BBBB, i should have it done by Sunday (i hope!).
My other ribbed sock is still on th back burner, and grandmom may get pot holders in the next couple of years!
