Last weekend I visited my parents and brought a few skeins of yarn for my mother to knit up.
My hope was to get a pair of socks. I didn't realize how fast they would materialize! Well, one at least. We had to make sure it fits. I'm sending it back Monday with some more yarn for another pair of socks for her.
This is yarn made from Moonstar's fiber mixed with 10% nylon and 20% merino.
It is soft and cozy and doesn't itch. Maybe, just maybe, this blend of yarn won't give me my normal allergic reaction to alpaca.
But in the meantime I'm happy to put up with a little bit of itchy-scratchy to wear home grown, home made clothing!
