This parcel arrived while I was visiting family in the states - how nice to have some new yarn as soon as I got back! If you've been lurking in any number of Ravelry groups you may have heard about the kerfuffle regarding KNIT Magazine's sock club, and how many people (myself included) are unhappy with it, but regardless of problems with the organization, the yarn has been fine. And this one was no exception: Shipment #5 is Sparkleduck.
I do want to emphasize that while the communication and organization behind the KNIT Magazine Sock Club have left much to be desired, the members feel no ill will towards the dyers or designers involved. In fact, I already have plans for this beautiful bright purple yarn: It might be my favorite yarn of the club. The base is Sparkleduck Jenny, a hefty 6-ply in the color Viola - a perfect violet purple.
Jenny comes in a generous 150g skein and is a nice sportweight sock yarn. I'm planning on making a pair of Kalajoki out of this - I think it will make the bright purple really shine.
