This colourway is called Orange Rainbow and is dyed on their Odyssey base which is 80% bfl and 20% nylon. I'm sure it will make some very happy socks :-)
The other yarn I ordered is called Firebird which is dyed on their Pharos base which is 75% superwash wool and 25% nylon so possibly harder wearing than the above yarn. I mainly ordered it for the colour though...
How yummy is that! :-D
I'm going to save both these yarns for either the Summer holidays or the Autumn. Feeling more able to knit something a bit different to socks now. The first pattern I want to do is Alec by Sezza knits. There's a KAL going on in June so I took advantage of the discount code, bought the pattern and ordered some yarn. I dyed it a semi-solid red colour but unfortunately on my camera this has photographed as looking pink!
It is definitely red, honest! I'm really looking forward to knitting this pattern, especially as Sarah has said she's working on an adult version which I think Mr Soaring Sheep would be very keen on :-)
For now though, I'm going to carry on knitting my sock. I'm about 2 inches off turning the heel of my second sock. I'll share some photos tomorrow for WIP Wednesday :-)
