Yarn P*rn of the Week

Since it seems I've lost the ability to stick to a schedule, I've decided to change Yarn P*rn Friday to Yarn P*rn of the Week. WIP Wednesday will become WIP of the Week also. This way, if I miss a Wednesday or a Friday, I don't need to stress myself out about it.

So, on to the yarn!!


This is a pretty skein of Mama-E's C*Eye*Ber Fiber Sock in a colorway called Mermaids, and it's one of the first skeins of sock yarn I'd ever bought. On a whim, I checked my PayPal records to see how long ago I purchased this skein, and it was exactly a year ago today!!! I'd say it's high time I knit it up. It's destined to be cast on soon and become Monkeys.

I love the Monkey pattern - it knits up so quickly. And it shows color nicely - those will be beautiful socks for spring.

I think that is a great pairing of yarn and pattern - and very springy!

Perfect decision about the "... of the week" thing - this way you won't get stressed out with having to stick to a certain day!
And gosh, this yarn goodie - reminds me of summer and a fruity mint-strawberry-sorbet - yummy!!!
