New Yarn in the Post (Mail)

I found a great deal on eBay... I won't tell you how great a deal it was, you will only hate me with intense yarn-envy and wish dropped stitches on me for a month!

It is from a lovely yarn internet site in UK, and I checked out her site. It is worth bookmarking and popping in to see what's new. Looks like the prices are quite good on a regular basis...


The yarn I scored is Tagliatelli, one of my favourite Colinette yarns. The colour is a bit bright, maybe discontinued, I don't know, but it makes me very happy to look at it and to touch the merino-yumminess, so I am sure whatever I knit with this will be equally neat and cool!

There are five 100 gram skeins here in a fushia pink mix. Stay tuned to see what they become...

Okay, I'm reqady to take the plunge and knit socks. I'll be using your "best sock pattern ever". I have very large calves and swollen feet (ugh) and that's the reason for my knitting my own. What is the best yarn to yese that washes well and how much should I buy. I say you inspire me, well now it's time to belly up to the bar !!!

Socks can be knit with any "sock yarn" they are all easy wash and durable. I like Patons' Kroy and they come in stripes and colours. But I have knit with almost all brands and they are all fine!
Good luck!
