My mom brought me this beautiful stuff to make a hat or two for Baby Bee. It's from a South African company called Be Sweet, and it's just the softest, fluffiest wool you can imagine. This skein is called a Magic Ball and the colorway is Nemo's World. I have a pattern ready to use to make the baby hat.
While she was here, mom and I also visited a relatively new yarn shop called Gauge that's dangerously close to my house. I spotted this Lorna's Laces wool and just had to have it. I'm planning to make myself a pair of socks (anyone know of any good toe-up patterns?) with it. I'm curious to see how it will stripe up.
But before I start the baby hat or the new socks for me, I have to knit Ella some stripey socks like I knit for Lily. I had three different colorways of SuperSocke wool, and I let Ella pick what she wanted. She's opted for what I call "Dobby" socks, with the pair made from two different colorways. I've already cast on the first sock, and she is just thrilled.
