Do You Like Handpainted Yarn?

Lookie what I found on Amazon…


New book by Carol Sulcoski titled Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarns. It is only available for pre-order, but it looks brilliant. It is all patterns designed to look good with handpainted yarns. Let’s face it, most patterns get lost in handpainted yarns, and plain stockinette socks are boring. And so you knit Chevron and Monkey and Jaywalker which are great, but we’ve all got a lot more handpainted in our stash than those will take.

Another new thing, at least new to me, is Opal’s new Harry Potter yarns. Check out this page on the Opal website and you can see each of the yarns, both in skeins and knit into a sock. I think I like the Hedwig colorway best (pictured) or maybe Harry’s own colorway.
