Yarn Along – 11/30/16
It’s been some lovely fiber times around here. I spun up some sock yarn from Fiber Optic Yarns. It is a blend of 55% superwash merino, 20% Alpaca, 20% Nylon, 5% Tussah Silk. I got a heavy fingering 3-ply.
I immediately cast on some more socks for my husband. He is extremely knit-worthy and appreciative and doesn’t have nearly enough handmade socks.
I am using my usual toe-up sock recipe with an afterthought heel. The texture is the waffle weave from the Blueberry Waffle Sock pattern.
As for reading, I am partway into a new audio book: The Chemistry of Tears, by Peter Carey.
I am not sure how I feel about it. The readers are excellent, and the story is compelling: After a tragic loss, museum curator, Catherine, becomes enthralled with the story of a museum piece she is restoring. But the characters and not entirely likable, which generally gives me a problem. I am REALLY hoping they redeem themselves or I fear this will be a terrible waste of a good story. Holding out hope!
It’s British, so I am plunging forward! Wishing you happy reading and knitting!
