Yummy new yarns!

to go with all those sock and mitt patterns….

Top row are “rio” yarns and have a small wool content so are a bit warmer but a little bit prickly until worn in.  The rest are all synthetics and reasonably smooth.  The colours aren’t quite right on this pic but I can’t be bothered wrestling with Gimp to brighten them so you will have to take my word for it but the last on the middle row is a purple and the last on the bottom row has more red in it than you would think from the picture.

Still dithering over patterns and sizes etc, but I’ve got plenty more rubbishy yarns and oddments to play with so I’m not wasting anything good and by the time it’s camp I’ll be all geared up!

    I think me and mine would love camping socks in the 4 colours on the right (so not the first!) on the top and the second to right on the bottom.

    I’m a 6, Fran a 1, Maddy a 13 but they could be the same, Amelie 10 and Josie 8 but they could also be the same 🙂

    Cool stuff T-bird.

    Blimey, Josie in an 8 already!

    Helen, your hands are about the same size as mine then (assuming you don’t have your gloves so tight they cut off the circulation! So I’ll do them to fit me and they should be fine for you.

    And I can do stripes with the plain colours just to further spoil you for choice…..

    ooh, now very tempted! i think i might fancy the red one on the bottom right now, perhaps -having said something different on the other blog, and if there was enough for matching socks…[7]!
    SB fancies a rainbow or purple – so whatever you think fits that description
    and bb can have the same as SB, and an 8 please
    thanks

    varigated purple or just plain purple for SB? Okay, silly question, the variated one I’d guess?
    Or I’ll do some varigated ones and have a go at a rainbow stripe pair and if they work she can choose which she prefers (I’ve done pink stripey today, I’m going to do a few more pairs then post them up for people to start picking from!)
