Well I did warn you that I quite liked the latest selection from Posh Yarn didn't I? I was bad, but all things considered I was quite restrained! The green and the orange skeins are definitely growing up into a pair of stripy socks. Or maybe mittens or gloves or a hat or oh I don't know, something! But I feel they look so good together that they are just screaming to be used together. Startitis will be very bad in the next week I know!
In my quest for yarn for the Golden Wedding Blanket, I hunted around on Ravelry and very cheekily asked one lady (Siw) if she could bear to part with this incredible green yarn (which in real life has lots of lemon in it too). She was sooooo kind and agreed to swap something with me. I sent her 2 skeins of Posh Eva 2-ply which I loved, and in return got all of this - Posh Helena, 2 skeins of something delicious hand dyed by Siw and a huge bar of Norwegian Chocolate. All very wonderful.
Thank-you so very much Siw. It is all fantastic - and I have already cast on with the green for another square! As to using the purple , I think I'm going to have a go at knitting 2 socks together on 2 circular needles. How about that then Marit?
