For the sake of those of you who have not yet received your shipment and want to be surprised, I won't say anymore. Those of you who would like to see it and hear about it, bear with me for a moment.
C'mon, scroll down!
Still with me? Good. May I present to you (drumroll, please) ...
Walking on the Wild Tide! This is Socks That Rock Silkie, a blend of 89% superwash merino and 19% silk, which apparently yield a 108% wonderful and delicious sock yarn.
I'll admit that I had peeked at photos posted on blogs of those who had already received their yarn, but this skein is even more beautiful in person. What looked like plies of white mixed with the color is actually plies of a lighter shade of each color, and the colors themselves are classic Blue Moon -- rich and vibrant. I can't wait to see how this knits up.
I guess I really have to finish the Most Boring Socks Ever now, don't I?
