I am still hard at work on the sock (4 inches now!) but was distracted by a couple of hats, and am now working on a poncho for a friend. I have since received another order of yarn from Knit Picks though, and I thought I would share that here.
Read on for a bunch of yarn pictures!
First up, I bought a bunch of the Brava acrylic in worsted weight
The white and the 3 previous colours are for a scarf pattern by Twinke-Chan.
I also bought some bulky weight for ponchos
I had thought I was all done with acrylic till I saw how well reviewed the Brava was and decided to give it a spin. It is sooo nice. It is really soft and nice to work with. Some of my friends prefer to have acrylic to wool (either for allergy,easy of care, or durability reasons) so I am extremely glad to have discovered it.
I also got some lighter weight yarnsPlanetarium, which is so much more beautiful in person, I wish I could capture it!
And some more black!
I got this colour (Gosling)
to make the Emergence Shawl by Kathryn White, from Interweave Crochet, Fall 2013.
This next one, Turmeric, is the only yarn I bought without a specific pattern in mind, but I couldn't resist:
Finally, I was given this last yarn as a birthday gift from my friend Amanda:
It is Rowan Kid Classic in colour 847. It is a beautiful mohair blend that I think I will use to make a hat.
So that is what i have coming up in the near future yarnwise. Later this week I will post some trip reports for the hats I made.
