Friday's Mail

Little did I know that these socks allowed me to win these lovelies! sKnitches Ravelry group had a Summertime KAL. You just knit whatever project you wanted in her yarns! I'm usually the one giving away yarns for our Sock-a-Month KAL's (currently on SAM 10!) so it was a nice surprise for me.

Love both of these colorways.

Sock Tryst MCN
First up is Sock Tryst which is MCN fingering. Some of you may know her regular Big Tryst yarn, the sportweight version.
sKNITches Sock Tryst
The colorway is Brood, with raspberry and tiny sections of brown. This will be a shawl I'm sure of it, nothing like cashmere around the neck :) It's so very soft!!

Next up is Syncopation in Boys and Frogs
sKNITches Syncopation
I think it's a neat colorway and will make cute socks, or a little something for a wee one. Decisions, decisions... Thanks Sam!

BTW, she's going to be having an update sometime this month. If you want to know ahead of time just look on the left sidebar here and subscribe to the newsletter.

Oooohhh, those are gorgeous. Congratulations. And I don't care how the old saying goes - sometimes it is better to receive than give. ;)

Congrats, those yarns are lovely. I especially like the Boys and Frogs one. I agree, cashmere on the neck sounds really nice!
