Just before Christmas, I went to Etsy to buy a swift. Somehow, a skein of sock yarn leapt into my cart, and I just had to purchase it.
That’s Merino/Tencel fingering weight from Cavyshops, in the Dorothy colorway. Interestingly, the picture for the skein that’s up in her shop now hasn’t been reskeined, and I don’t quite like it as much. Reskeined, it’s lovely. I keep changing my mind about what to knit with it.
It’s lovely, and it’s the last yarn I’ll be purchasing for a while. I am on a serious Knit From Your Stash kick these days. And, yes, for me, sock yarn does count as stash.
