Book Yarn, Part II
Published On: June 16, 2011

Hey look, it’s our friend Percival again.  I am totally making him earn his keep.  Fair disclosure, I set him up on the front porch and clicked through all of the various yarns one after the other.  It was windy, some of the pictures feature yarn wandering off to one side or the other.  It was also getting dark.  So you might be able to line all the pictures up and figure out in what order I took them based on how dark it is.  But I’m guessing you’ve got better things to do with your time.

On the left is Handwerks So-Soft-DK in the color Lemongrass.  Now we all know I love Handwerks for socks, but this was my first exposure to their non-sock yarn.  Turns out, I love it too.  This is a 80/10/10 merino cashmere nylon blend.  I’m actually pretty convinced it would make yummy thick socks, but this particular skein is destined for something else entirely.

On the right is Handwerks Sock Plus 8 in the color Misty Morning.  Sock Plus 8 is quickly becoming one of my very favorite sock yarns.  It’s soft, seemingly indestructible, nicely proportioned, and comes in great colors.  I’m thrilled to be using it again.
