She used Plucky Knitter Bello and Plucky Knitter Primo Fingering. HOLEEEE COWABUNGA is that stuff soft!!!!!
I may need to place these yarns on my wish list for 2014 (seeing as I have no guilt about stash acquisition - ever).
The blues and toffee/coppery colors she chose remind me of turquoise. I think they make her skin glow and her eyes twinkle. What do you think?
Sam (who also has glowing skin and twinkly eyes) made more progress on the Sock Yarn Blanket by Heathen Housewife. Sam calls it "sock yarn madness" but the rest of us call it frickin' beautiful! She has tweaked the square size to be just a little bigger than Heathen Housewife's and figured out a nifty way to create a flat edge, unlike the original. Both versions are outstanding!
***my apologies, Sam, for the blurry pic of your face. I don't know what happened!
I've been so inspired by this project that I've started one too. No pics yet because. . .well. . . who would want to compete with that? (sideways glance). It's gotten to the point that I think I might be knitting socks just so I have scraps to use.
Tammy was knitting away on a hat for her husband out of a luscious color of something. . .Malabrigo, I think. Maybe Manos del Uruguay. I don't know how she managed to elude my camera phone. I'm usually so much faster than that! Better watch out, Tammy! I AM going to getcha!
