Bits and Pieces

Remember this? Its the 8 ounces of Merino and Hemp I spun a while back. I had just over 500 yards of it and was thinking of making a smoke ring of some kind with it. The problem was, it was a really yellowish creamy white, which is a color I don't look good in. So yesterday, into the dyepot it went, and it came out this pale blue green color, which is one of my favorites!

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.

Your dye job came out very pretty - soft looking color for a soft yarn. I am sure whatever you make it will be gorgeous! And of course the sock - well, blueberry waffles are my favorite , mindless sock to knit.
Great ideas!

Your little sock gave me the idea of knitting up sock-shaped sachets with the holiday gifts. Thank you for the inspiration. :)
