Drum Roll Please ……. Smudge Yarns Have Arrived

Look at the lovely parcel that arrived yesterday.  (Actually there were 4 more but lets look at this one now)

OK so from the outside it doesn’t look so great and you’d never know what was inside, unless of course you’ve spotted the sticker?

Can you make out what it is now?

The anticipation is actually killing me, all this photo taking lark is completely against my inner self screaming ‘just open the damn thing’.

Gorgeous, hand dyed here in Cork, Smudge Superwash Sock Yarn is €23 per 100g.  There’s five shades to choose from at the moment and each beautiful 100g hank contains 300 metres of blended 4ply yarn, 70% wool/30% nylon.  Not just for socks, I’m thinking a shawl maybe, but I do ♥love♥ my socks…..

Yesterday’s Goodies

Here’s a quick snap of the lovely new sock yarn that arrived in yesterday.  It’s the Sweet & Spicy range from Opal and there are 8 gorgeous shades all 4ply of course so they can be used as a substitute yarn for other 4ply garments.

Tempted?

These are the adapted Alice Mitts I made yesterday to show the girls at the Children’s Knitting Group this morning as there are a few of them that have asked to make them next.

Happy Knitting!

 

I used the Colourbrushed Chunky from Tivoli, which is very reasonably priced (€3.95 for 100g), soft and comes in very child friendly colourways.  Even better than that I probably have about half the ball left, so it’s 2 pairs for the price of one.
