Let the Sun Shine In!!

Isn't it warm and sunshiney? It made my day to come home to this in the mailbox! This is 600 yards of SW Merino fingering/sock weight spun up by my good friend Lori. Check out her Etsy shop! She's got handspun and roving up for grabs!


She also included some goodies which made my day! Thank you so very much for being you, Lori! This yarn is screaming knee-highs to me. I have loved Lakeside since I have seen them, but I'm a bit worried that my yarn may be too busy and the beautiful pattern might get lost. What do you think?

P.S. I am quite intrigued with the Bintje-Socks. I think my colors would work better.

My needles for the FLS are winging their way to me as we speak, so the socks will wait! I can't wait to start my sweater!!

Lori's stuff is so awesome. I'm in awe of her! I'm curious - what else did you get for "goodies"?

I vote for Bintje too - I think the Lakeside needs a solid (or semi-solid) to bring out that lace... I'm so glad you love the yarn! Mwah!
