YP Booty, Interlacements, and a Footie

Posted in Knitting, Socks, Stash tagged at 3:05 am by Jennie

The second Yarn Pirate Booty Club is here! I don’t think this would be a colorway I would normally pick out but that’s the point of the club. The colorway is called Calamity, isn’t it a cute name? It’s Superwash Bluefaced Lleicester (BFL), another texture I’ve yet to work with so who knows, I may knit this one up sooner.

The pics I took sort of bleached out the colors, it actually has gorgeous purple and teal segments.

Ahhh my first fancy yarn to work with; Interlacements. Knitting this stuff up was just a fantastic feeling. So after hearing about the sale at simplysockyarn.com, I had to get me some more.

A pile o’ yumminess…

Last but not least, I’ve made some progress on the footies. One down, and I’m working on it’s mate. These socks are looking quite different. I should have it’s fraternal twin done in a few days.

    All the yummy sock yarn and to think, I don’t have interlacements yet. 🙂
    Can’t wait to see the socks together. Are they really that different? Handpainted yarn works in mysterious ways. 🙂

    Yummy Interlacements!! I still need to knit up mine (yours…well, they’re mine now *LOL*). And the Tiger footy looks great!

    The footie is coming along great! Can’t wait to se how different the other one comes out. I really like the YP color. I have tried BFL sock yarn – I’ll bet it holds up to wear really well.

    Great score on the interlacements.
