Subtitled: See how I make the meme work for me ;)
Last month I entered a giveaway on figknits, during the Junebug giveaway month. I was very, very excited to win this beautiful yarn:
It's Shalimar Yarns, Zoe Sock, in the discontinued colourway "PillowMint"
But that's not all, the parcel also included a size D crochet hook (for those, like me, who have only just got to grips with knitting needle sizes and are still bewildered by crochet sizes - it's teeny tiny!) and a cute "mirth" t-shirt. I have to say, even though I don't crochet, the hook feels lovely to hold with its smooth bamboo handle. It's now in my notions bag waiting for me to learn how to use it *laughs*
The yarn is 100% Australian Superwash Merino and is beautifully soft. It's just over 400m worth, so I'm thinking it'll make some knee high socks, which will be fab *grins* My plan is to split it in half when I wind it, and knit the socks toe up, so that I can make sure I use all of the yarn (I usually have quite a bit left over as I underestimate just how small my feet are!)
And, just because I can, here's another picture, isn't it pretty *smiles*
