I received a card in the mailbox earlier this week letting me know that I had a package, so today I walked over to Strawberry Hills to pick it up. It turned out to be the skein of sock wool I won in the Give a Little Hurricane Katrina relief raffle. Unable to contain my curiosity, I pulled off the paper and literally let out a gasp: IT WAS GORGEOUS. The wool is called Vesper Sock Yarn from Knitterly Things, and it’s 100% merino. The colour is “Algae” and I absolutely love it. I’ll need a special pattern for this one… (Many thanks to Rebecca for sending it to me!)
