I've had quite a few nice yarns arrive into my stash recently, hopefully these will be the last for a while as I'm trying to reduce my stash not add to it lol. These two are from a dyer I've not used before but I spotted them in her latest update and couldn't resist
They are both from Countess Ablaze. The blue is on the "Viscount of Spark" base which is 75% merino, 20% nylon and 5% stellina. The pink one is on the "Lady Persephone" base which is 75% bfl and 25% nylon
This one I found difficult to photograph the colours right. The blue is more of a petrol colour and the orange is more coppery. It's called "Big Fish in a Little Pond" and I originally bought it for Mr Soaring Sheep. Now it's arrived I rather fancy keeping it for myself! Except Mr Soaring Sheep quite likes it too, even with the sparkle. There might be a fight ;-) There is some more of it left in the shop but I don't know if I'd want to knit four socks in the same colourway. Hmm what to do...
This one has gorgeous dapples of colour, really looking forward to seeing how it knits up. It's called "Eccentric Geeks"
My plan for today is to turn the heel on these socks. I kind of wish I'd done the leg part on the other sock a bit longer but at least it means I'll have lots of yarn left over for my blanket
So I ask for your opinions, what should I do about Mr Soaring Sheep wanting the blue sock yarn?
1. Be kind and generous and make it into socks for him
2. Be selfish and keep it for myself but maybe get something else to make him socks with
3. Buy a second skein and knit us matching socks in the same colourway
4. Something else?
