Today we will look at some stash enhancement. I don't know when I'll get to knit it, but isn't it pretty? All of this came from The Woolen Rabbit. Spinners probably know about her wonderful fibers (she is the one who did the Opalessence Fiber I spun up a while back), but a few months ago she started dyeing yarns too. At the top is her laceweight in the Peacock colorway, which uses Zephyr Wool Silk as the base yarn. Each skein is 1 ounce and I hope to someday knit Christine's Gift of Friendship scarf with it - I even have some beads that will be beautiful with this yarn. The middle skein is Merino/Tencel sock yarn in Mo' Berry. The bottom skein is the same sock yarn in Peacock again. I have never knit socks with the Merino/Tencel blend yarn, but I know several of the yarn dyers are using it and after holding it in my hand and petting it, I really like it. It's very soft and silky! I've changed my mind about my Sockapalooza Pal's socks and I will be knitting them in the Peacock skein you see here. Of course, now I also have to pick a new pattern because this yarn won't work with my original plan.
