As you know, I won yarn for my now twice prize-winning Stitchsurfer socks - and it has arrived! The ladies of the Must Stash podcast sent me a hank of Sweet Georgia's Tough Love sock yarn in the colourway Summer Dusk. It consists of 80% merino and 20% nylon, and it's just so smooshy.
It really is very nice and soft, which I like a lot. I think the yarn will have great stitch definition, too, from what I can tell at this point. I wish I didn't have so many other knitting projects on the go that I could start with this yarn. It's the knitter's constant problem: too many WIPs. (I shall gloss over the many abandoned though half-finished projects.)
When I showed the hank to Mark he immediately said it looks like the yarn that I dye. He's right! It will be fun to see how it knits up; I've already had a look at other people's projects on Ravelry so I have an idea. I suspect I will make socks again. No surprise there! Because of the way it will knit up, I think a lacy pattern won't do much good. Perhaps I will make something with only knit and purl stitches, a bit of cabling, perhaps. Or, maybe, I should make new gloves! Oh dear. I can never decide.
