The colours look almost subdued in these photos which is a shame. They've got lots of sparkle in them which seems to have dyed the same colour as the yarn so in some places it's gold and others it's more of a silvery-grey
The yarn is from Countess Ablaze and is called "Big Fish in a Little Pond". I originally bought it for me but Mr Soaring Sheep was eyeing it up so I thought I'd order a second skein for him. I'll knit my skein up into a more patterned sock I think so we can tell them apart!
In the top left corner you can see a square I've made using the left over yarn. I've got 64 squares finished in my sock yarn banket now. I'm still ignoring the ends so I'll need to do a lot of weaving in at some point! I can't remember how many squares I'm aiming for but I want the blanket to be big enough for an adult to snuggle up under so still got a way to go. I'm enjoying seeing how the different yarn colours contrast with each other. Hopefully I'll have some more finished socks soon so I can get some more squares done. I'm still resisting buying mini skeins, even though they are very very tempting!
Hope you all have a good week and if you're in the UK then I hope you get to escape the rain we keep getting!
