For someone who prefers natural colors, I find it interesting that when I do buy yarn, it is often a pop of color. I suppose it makes sense since I can spin my own yarn and I'm not too interested in becoming a dyer. ;-)
Yoth Yarns is a relatively new brand with great presentation. I loved the industrial feeling of their display furniture and color palette. Which made the few non-steel-like colors really pop out.
The orange made me think of Hubba, so I brought home one skein of "Little Brother," a fingering weight of squooshy Superwash Merino, Cashmere and Nylon.
I thought I might make him a hat, but he said he preferred socks.... so I wound the skein into a cake, weighed it and then broke the cake into two... 50g each.
I considered trying two-at-a-time socks but given the fact that I have yet to be affected by SSS (Second Sock Syndrome) and I had a trip coming up, I decided that one at a time would be easier to handle on the airplane.
I am using US#2 (2.75mm) and the Sock It To Me pattern. So far I have worked both socks to the end of the foot and am into the second gusset.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
