Twist and Shout

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My current knitting project (a purple cricket jumper – one day I may make a cricket jumper in a conventional colour, but I doubt that day will be anytime soon) has been put on hold as I took delivery of both a small greenhouse (perfect for drying yarn in over the winter) and 50 skeins of superwash sock yarn.

The yarn arrived in hank form in bundles of 5s, so much twisting was required to get it all into my new stackable storage bins from Ikea. All skeins are considerably longer than what I have worked with in the past, so I will have to consider my approach to variegated colourways with respect to this.

I also got 5 skeins of BFL lace to experiment with, possibly something in a more delicate, paler set of colours than the sock yarn.
