We all want to knit from stash, to reduce it, blah blah blah. But it does feel good to get some newcomers. Ones that have not yet been tried. I got some Opal Hundertwasser and Van Gogh colourways and my sister sent me some Faroese wool.
Over the holidays I taught my niece to knit some socks. Thus, a present for her was some sock wool and some knitting needles. I don't remember what wool it was (a solid German quality, that for sure), but it was one of those self-striping types. I was also knitting some socks for my husband and me. Those were plain blue. And I was jealous of the wool that my niece was knitting with. Now I'm set for the upcoming pairs.
