The knitpicks order of worsted and bulky weight yarns I had ordered for shawls arrived today!
I got four hanks of simply wool worsted yarn in Wordsworth, as well as six hanks of the simply wool bulky yarn in Wanda.
The worsted weight is the brown and the bulky yarn is the off white:
This winter, between working on knitting up socks, and other projects I am hoping to get two more shawls knit up before next summer.
As someone who loves making my own socks and cold weather wear and accessories, I love trying and using different yarns and seeing how projects turn out.
I am definitely more of a diy kind of girl, especially when it comes to hats, scarves, shawls and socks. I do wear store bought socks for day to day still (especially socks that are made to wear with athletic shoes as well as shoes like Toms and Vans), I do love my hand knit socks for when I wear boots. With the exception of hiking in the summer, mid autumn – early spring is typically boots and wool socks weather around here.
