I think it would make a very nice combo too!
Did any of you go to Maryland Sheep and Wool this weekend? If so, I'm jealous! I swear, one of these years I'm going to not be pregnant, or nursing, or caring for a little one and I will greatly enjoy giving up
mommy duties for a weekend to enjoy the event. Maybe in a couple years? If you went this year, please tell me all about your favorite parts in the comments below. Did you buy lots of yarn and fiber? Did you find something you'd been looking for for a long time? What about a meetup with a group of people from Ravelry? Do tell!
Instead of shopping for sheepy things, I spent a lot of time front porch sitting with Joe and James. The weather here was perfect and allowed for lots of knitting, book reading, and playing with cars...
...and taking pictures of my knitting. Yes, I will soon reveal what this new striping yarn is. Look below at how nice the color change is between the navy and acidic green. While I don't expect hand dyed yarn to be perfect (especially hand dyed stripes because they require so much more labor than variegated yarns), after all the nature of hand made goods means that they are imperfect, I really like that there aren't 1/8" white spots between color changes in this skein. And knitting the stripes is so addictive that this sock is practically knitting itself!
