socksing along.

while at the craft sessions over the weekend, the unthinkable happened...

i ran out of the grey wool for my heart blankie! as i don't like to waste money on things like postage, (bendigo orders need to be a minimum of $50 for free postage, and i'm on a self-imposed wool buying ban...), i thought i'd start another project.

i decided on socks of course!
these ones are for bb and i am LOVING the way the colours change through this yarn as it knits up. it's called murano from bendigo woollen mills in the blue colourway (CK38).
if i didn't already have 2 balls of this stuff, it would be hard to stop myself acquiring more... especially in that dreamy green colourway!

i can't help but think how lovely a milo would be knitted up with these lovely colour changes...
that might not be far off with how quickly socks knit up in an 8 ply...

what have you cast on recently? do you knit with variegated yarns? what's your favourite?
