My first exposure to Welsh yarn
Completed in June 2013

This hand-dyed plum lusciousness is the fabled Jitterbug sock yarn from Colinette yarn company.

Nice yarn, but in the hand wash, it bled like the dickens. And, it's a bit thick for my taste. And, I ran out of said plum lusciousness and had to resort to contrasting toes in gray. Not the end of the world, but still. This Jitterbug is very expensive yarn, and so I expect a bit more out of it than this.

The last two photos, above, are me knitting the socks at Sissinghurst Castle, the English country home of the poet, Vita Sackville-West, and her husband, Harold Nicolson. The gardens were amazing!
