Bits and Pieces
The hemp didn't take the dye, only the wool, so the color isn't completely solid, it has that wonderful hand dyed look with the light and dark shadings in it. I hope to make up my mind on what to knit with it soon, because it really wants to get on the needles once its dry.
Of course, by now you've noticed the tiny sock next to the skein of yarn. I made this little guy last night. I thought it would be fun to put tiny socks on Christmas gifts this year. They'll pack and ship better than bows and they can be used as Christmas ornaments too! I did this one with the stitch pattern from the Blueberry Waffle Socks and I'm really happy with how cute it is. Tiny socks work up so quickly that they should be an easy, fun thing to get me started with Christmas gifts.
