1- LOTS of something beautiful! Natural brown, from a sheep in Alberta. Much proto-yarn (aka Batts)


2- Many bouncy, silky confetti proto-yarns (again, batts).  Polwarth and silk


3- Rainbow proto-yarn! (batts) Polwarth

Wow! I'm sitting outside the yarn shop right this minute waiting for it to open up. Your post is an awesome appetizer, everything looks super yummy!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Heh, funny you know I didn't just go in there to look Cheesy.

Sock yarn, it comes with 2 identical balls so both socks will turn out exactly the same. & a circular needle so I can do them toe up two at a time. The first time I knit socks. Or anything. Mmmhmm, I'm crazy like that.

I might make one upside down so they are reverse of each other. I don't know why I bothered to buy this yarn, I like asymmetry!

Since you bought 2 balls,  can you just pull from the opposite end of the skein? Instead of one toe-up, and one band-down? One center pull, the other outside- in?


Yay for fiber!

Well, if you walk into a yarn store you always certainly come out with yarn.  It's inevitable!
That's some fun yarn! I'd probably also knit from opposite ends. Because I have a hard time with symmetry too.
