A Little Seduction for the New Year

I’m done with the old year.  Done, done, done!  Did I mention how I’m done with it all?

New things beckon, new possibilities to unfold, and I’m so, so glad that there is yarn to play with.  See what lovelies I have?

The lovely rose-colored one on the left?  Courtesy of Scout of Scout’s Swag, the latest club shipment.  I hope she sells this in her store eventually, because it is really nice.  I really, really like it, and I’m pondering the possibilities of a lovely scarf or shawl, possibly out of Sock-Yarn One Skein Wonders.

The other one is from Iv Brambles Sockscene – a gift from Nhien, who is a long-time friend in southern California – the colors couldn’t be more perfect for me.  See the lovely colors?

I’m thinking a textured pair of socks would be nice!

In other knitting progress, a pair of mittens is close to done:

and a pair of socks for someone headed to Iraq will be done by the time he’s headed out:

  1. Those are indeed yummy-looking skeins. I had to look very quickly, before I had a chance to look up the dyer on the Internet!

    Your projects are lovely. I especially like the patterning on the mitten. I have a feeling that you made up the color pattern!

    • Yes, I did the colorwork design, but it’s really a simple pattern. I’m rethinking the varigated skein, and looking at the Coquille Shawl pattern on Knitty!
