I’ve got some very nice, Indie dyed yarn in my stash and I need to make up my mind what to do with some of it. The three skeins on the bottom right in the photo would make a gorgeous shawl. The five skeins on the top might make a nice sweater if I can decide how to combine them. I’d like to use the three skeins on the left for matching socks, scarf and hat.
I’m going to wind this into two balls for another pair of socks. This is Cascade Heritage Sock Yarn and is super soft and machine washable. I’ll weigh the ball of yarn and then start rewinding it, weighing it again as I’m winding off of it to make sure I’ve got as close to equal weight for both halves.
This skein is already wound, well…rewound. This is Fishknit’s sock yarn. I frogged a shawl using this green and an oatmeal in the same yarn. I intended to knit another Ludlow but the yarn blended too much instead of giving a nice contrast so I decided I’d like a pair of socks in a green semi-solid. I’ll decide on a textured pattern for both of these yarns.
There is a lot more yarn in the bottom of that plastic bin and another bin the same size with mostly solids in Cascade Heritage sock yarn to choose from. Sock yarn is my favorite weight for this part of Texas. I don’t wear much in the way of heavy knits even in winter.
