I got a shipment today from a sock club. Everything was a little bit off for me. I like the yarn texture and color. I could tell that it was going to be stripey and not in a way I like. The patterns were kind of good. One was socks with what looks like an interesting pattern. It gets lost if you use the club yarn. One was a shawl that shows off the yarn well. It's too little for my taste.
I'm not sulking about this (for a change). I bought the whole collection from The Sock Report yesterday. I found a shawlette in the collection that's more to my liking and I'll use the yarn for that. I might even move it to the top of the queue. The colors look a bit like Earth and it might work for the Nerd Wars scientific challenge.
