Finished Yarn And Fine And Dandy’s

My avocado/turmeric yarn is done! I’m really pleased with it! Obviously not the dusky pink I was originally going for but I do love a pair of yellow socks! Actually I’ve managed to get a lovely variegation. As soon as the very pale pink yarn hit the turmeric in the jar it just sucked it up straight away, but I also layered the avocado pits in through the yarn so I’m still getting pockets of the pale pink. It’s very spring like!

Once everything was dry I immediately cast on my Fine and Dandy’s. I love learning new techniques and as these are my first pair of toe up socks I tackled Judy’s magic cast on which was super fun and has made the neatest toe!

Also I have to mention about the yarn. As I’ve said before I’m using John Arbon alpaca/merino/nylon  and it is gorgeous! I’m in love with it. It’s so soft but feels hard wearing at the same time. It’s a little thicker than other sock yarns I’ve used so it’s knitting up slightly denser and cosier, which I’m really happy about! This yarn also comes in DK and aran weight so I’m already plotting what else I can make with it!

Anyway, much more sock knitting to come, plus another dyeing experiment! Happy Tuesday all! xxxx
