I know I said I was going to give a little tutorial on knitting two sleeves at once, but I haven't wound the skeins of yarn yet. I did get two skeins wound yesterday, but they obviously aren't for the sleeves of my Chinese Lace Pullover. These are the two sock yarns for the Fire Socks pattern. Both are from Fleece Artist and both are the Merino sock yarn. On the left is Burgundy* and on the right is Ruby Red (I think I had more tension on the Ruby Red ball when I wound it so it looks smaller - I'm going to rewind it today). I will get the Dream In Color yarn wound into balls today for the sleeve/fronts tutorial, but it has to wait until after Finn gets a bath - he's getting downright stinky!
*I'm not entirely sure that this is really the Burgundy color from Fleece Artist. My Lady of the Lake Cardi was in the Burgundy colorway and I have a skein of Sea Silk in Burgundy as well. Both of those were more plum and berry colors with coppery browns in them. This skein is definitely reds with some olive tones to it. It might be a difference in dyelots, but this seems pretty far off to me, which is why I question the exact colorway. It will work perfectly for one of the Fire Sock designs though!

Whether or not it's Burgundy, Melanie, it's amazing. Being a big fan of the Fleece Artist myself, there can be a LOT of variation in her stated colourways. Example: I bought a pretty wild skein of Italian silk that was - no other word for it - chartruese. I later learned it was meant to be her Olive colourway!

Look forward to seeing the socks... and thanks for stopping by my blog!

I like Fleece Artist too. I have a single skein of their cashmere. It was supposed to be a lace moebius but I kind of like it as stash.

Those reds are beautiful.
