Happy Squishy Mail

I had a moment last week, or maybe it was the week before, when I was sewing up a  couch cushion while balancing the phone against my ear and trying to get through a bunch of automated menus. Not the best time to have someone come in and dump the mail in my lap. I was dealing with enough at that particular second without having more things added.

The same thing happened again a few days later, but that time there was a squishy envelope on top of the pile from my friend Jo.


Isn't it pretty?!  I've never used this brand before and this colorway isn't showing up on Ravelry, but from the others that do show up, it's going  to make some wonderfully busy stripes. At first glance, I thought this yarn might be too close to the stuff I'm using for my Faster Socks to knit them back to back, but in addition to the white and orange and black, this one has green and yellow.

I talked myself out of frogging my toe and starting over with the pretty new yarn.

That is a VERY interesting color variation. Are these yarns made strictly for socks, or can they be used for anything knitted or crocheted? dezertsuz at gmail
