Summer is here, and like many other knitters, I welcome the thought of bright colors and lighter weight yarn! I normally love working with 100% worsted weight wool, but when the temps warm up I love to bust out the sock yarn.
So, imagine my delight when Dancing Dog Dyeworks announced that they were going to have a sock club over the summer from June through August! I couldn't resist and signed up right away, and then the waiting began. It didn't take long even though it felt like months, it was actually a weeks, and when it was posted that the June shipment was a sent Monday I started stalking my mailman waiting for my delivery!
When I went to my mailbox this morning there it was, waiting for me! I immediately tore it open to find the brightest and summer-y yarn I could have asked for! And the best part? It's self-striping! SQUEE! I have a major weakness for self striping yarn.
I'm pretty sure I know exactly what I'm going to make with it, and it's not socks. So, I will have to play with it and make sure it will work, and I will share my project as soon as it's finished!
