This week I've been working on a couple of the new designs with these two yarns with similar fiber content, but different weights. On the left is a cake of the wonderful new Schaefer Audrey in the Elizabeth Kubler-Ross colorway. It's 50-50 wool/silk single ply and comes in 700 yard hanks. Whoa, sister, that's a bunch. I am working on a very pretty lace sock with it. I have to stop every five rounds or so and just admire its beauty. The hank on the right is Butternut Woolens Silkie (Shelly blogs about it here.) It's 60-40 wool/silk and is also a single ply in Aran weight, and it comes in 440 yard hanks. I'm working on something with cables with this fat goodness.
There ya go. Enough for today. Gotta go do a very late yoga workout and get ready to go to get a mammagram (oh, joy.) Yep, it's big doctor visit week for me! After that, I deserve to come back home and knit some more with those gorgeous yarns, don't you think? I knew you'd agree.
