starting a new project. I promised myself I wouldn't, not until the scarf is finished. It's just making a gauge swatch--an important part of the process of knitting! And I really, really wanted to get the feel of my new Knit Picks needles. They are SMOOTH!!!
These are two balls of Mary Maxim Aloe Sock Yarn, Oasis on the left and Sahara on the right. Ever since I discovered the lovely effect of mixing two related balls of variegated yarn, I've been enthusiastic about the possibilities. I'm considering this mix for a pair of socks for the Dear Daughter in Law who has never had a pair of socks from me. It's her turn. She does read this blog--what do you think, Cindy?
