It's beginning to look a lot like.... you know

Time to think about gift socks. These have been under way for a long time now. My notes say I started them on August 6th. Yikes! I generally have socks on the go, although they don't generally take this long. They make good TV knitting.




I can't quite express how luscious is this yarn. Misti Alpaca, Tonos Carnival. It's 50% Alpaca, 30% Merino, 10% Silk and 10% Nylon. It is exquisite. The colour is TF25 Truffle. All warm browns. I have one more skein in navy, so I will have the pleasure of knitting another pair of socks in Tonos Carnival in the future. As well, I seem to have a fairly large ball of leftover yarn from this pair, since there were 400 meters in the skein. This yarn was made in Peru. I don't think I've found a Peruvian yarn yet that wasn't luscious.

Grandma Coco gives Misti Alpaca, Tonos Carnival an unreserved thumbs up!

  1. They even look soft in the picture. Love the design you stitched - it's so feminine.
