wollmeise stash update

some new skeins of my favourite yarn in the world moved in recently. 6 new skeins of wollmeise :) yippeee. it’s so hard to get any wollmeise these days, so i sent my parents to the farmers market in sindelfingen where wollmeise had a market stall. they only live about 15km away so it was the perfect chance to get my hands on some yummy yarn. i also got some skeins for my colleague reingard.

my next wollmeise project will be the entangled stitches gloves by julia müller. not sure about which yarn to use yet…

this is my loot! they are from left to right: safran (100% merino superwash), granatapfel (twin, merino & poly), försters glück (twin, merino & poly), barist’o‘ (100% merino superwash),  neptun (100% merino superwash), wellensittichvogelfeder (100% merino superwash)

and this is my complete wollmeise stash:

from top to bottom and left to right: nature, safran, terra di siena, red hot chili, granatapfel, farn, pfefferminz prinz, neptun, barist’o‘, wellensittichvogelfeder, frosch, försters glück

merino lace socks

pattern: merino lace sock from the interweave knits book „favorite socks“

yarn: 66 g lana grossa meilenweit cotton stretch

needles: 2.5mm dpns

size: 39

these socks are 60% made in germany and 40% made in britain 😉 i didn’t like the yarn much in the beginning, but it brings out the pattern so clearly! perfect airy summer socks for my mum. i bet she’ll love them!

i couldn’t take photos of the two socks together yet, because it just doesn’t work wit flash. but here are the photos of the first finished sock. enjoy 😉
