I Made Yarn's first FO!

I always encourage people who buy my yarn to show me pictures of what they have knitted, because it's exciting to see how my colors knit up and gives me an idea of what dyeing methods work and what doesn't. Now I've got my first picture of an FO made from Palladium luxury sock, the cashmere sock blend.

Beach Surf turquoise robin's egg blue brown handpainted hand dyed cashmere mernio nylon sock yarn handknit knitted socks by Jen Hanks in the Hood

Jen of Hanks in the Hood (which makes some wonderful yarn and spinning fiber, by the way) showed me her cashmere merino socks, in the colorway Beach Surf.

Don't they look cozy? Plus they've got a neat diagonal striping thing going on.

I'm busy posting some new lace and fingering weight yarns in the shop, in some really nice colors (in my humble opinion ;), plus don't forget to enter the Handknit Heroes giveaway!
