Ok yarn. You win.

I bought this lovely yarn from a fairly local (the next province over) dyer last month.  It's from Yarn Ink, who has a shop on etsy.

I love the colours!  I immediately wound the brown and blue skein into a ball and used it cast on socks.

It's so lovely to work with.  It feels so nice and soft and silky. The yarn is 75% merino, 20% nylon, and 5% sparklies.  There's just one problem.  The yarn doesn't want to be socks.  It wants to be a scarf.

I've tried to ignore it.  I love the way it's knitting up as a sock. But every time I pick up the needles to work on it, the yarn just nags at me.  "Make me a scarf.  Make me a scarf."

So, I'm giving in.  I'll be frogging the sock, and making a scarf out of it instead.

BTW, the lovely yarn bowl was part of my Christmas gift from my friend Val.  Isn't it lovely?

Have a great week!

It's a snowy Sunday here. We had a storm yesterday that dropped a lot of snow here.

So today is a good day to stay inside, drink tea, watch a movie and knit!

Hope your Sunday is a wonderful one!

I haven't accomplished much this week.  I haven't been feeling well, and haven't had the energy to work on any big projects.  Thank goodness for socks!  They're the perfect project since I can pick them up and put them down easily.

This is my second pair of socks for 2015.  I'm going to set up a make-your-own sock club later this week.  I'll have pictures and an explanation later!

Have a good week!
