Another Welsh sock yarn experience
Completed in February 2014

This is the Welsh Colinette brand Jitterbug sock yarn, in the Oyster Blush colorway. The fiber content is 100% merino wool.

It's nice enough to knit with, but it's a bit thick for my sock taste. I prefer a really thin sock yarn knit on tiny needles. These Colinette socks were knit on HUGE 2.5mm DPNs. Huge!

The colors are actually muted tans and browns, which the photo denies. Brownish sock yarn always impresses me once knit.

Note to self: Don't be so quick to judge a book by its cover: Sometimes a ho-hum hank of wool can transform into something wondrous once knit.
