YP & Friends Friday

Well this week I get to combine pr0n by a friend. We had been reading each other's blogs for a while, and when sKNITches was first opened, I was lucky and scored her very first Limited Edition . I still can't bring myself to knit it up yet. (Wow, 2 yrs ago) Since then I've acquired quite a few of her yarns and have allowed myself to knit with some. ;) I have a toe finished in another colorway .

Recently debuted is her new yarn base Big Tryst and her Duckies sock pattern. I love these socks and the colorway.
009
Cinnamon Teal Duck (hehe I keep calling it Duck Teal...duh)
Big Tryst-DK weight
80% Superwash Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Nylon
Approx. 250yds
"pond brown, pink webbed feet, teal bill" describes it well


Cinnamon Duck Teal
Very, very soft and squooshy. I bet socks in these will be so comfy.

Big Tryst
I so wished I didn't have like 4 sock pairs in progress, cause I want to knit a pair now....patience...must have patience....

Good thing I waited until after her recent update to let you know huh ;) well, not on purpose, it just turned out that way.

Very pretty! After falling down and going BOOM on yarn a little too much this week, I'm back on the wagon. Hell, if I just knit from sock stash, I wouldn't run out for about two years! :)

Such lovely soft colours. It's hard not to want to keep casting on for something new when there's such wonderful yarns to keep trying. Willpower!

Love the color! I have a few skeins of sock yarn that I don't want to knit up yet because I enjoy just holding them and looking at the gorgeous color. Weird, huh?
