Using the Watermelon Self Striping yarn RIGHT NOW! It’s heavenly to knit! The fabric is so soft and light, I know I’ll enjoy the socks YEAR ROUND! Apple Core yarn is next. And now my husband wants a pair too! Pictures soon.
Biscotte Yarn is a wonderful shop, beautiful yarn and very helpful customer service...will purchase again
I just love this self-striping yarn! The first time one of the "seeds" popped up on the needle, I got such a thrill! (I'm a nerd like that). The yarn is very soft and easy to work with. Using a 2.5mm needle, might drop to a 2.25 next time, and there WILL be a next time. Working on my socks now, so I can't speak to the after blocking qualities, but very happy so far.
