First I laboriously unraveled. I had to ball the colors as I went because otherwise I would have had an unholy mess. Then I wound each ball onto my niddy noddy. When I took the yarn off, it looked like it had been to the hair salon:Then everyone went into the kitchen sink for a shampoo and came out straight and smooth again:I tied the skeins in plenty of places to make sure they didn’t re-tangle. Aren’t these little mini-skeins adorable? I guess you can’t tell how mini they are without some context. Here is a lip balm thrown in there for scale:
The green is Shelridge Farms Soft Touch Heather. I have a bunch of it (200 g) because I originally planned to knit knee socks with it. This is the yarn I used recently for the Knuckle Buster fingerless knits. Everything else is from the SSYC Solids line, which I can’t recommend highly enough. I’ve been using those solids for the Lorilee Beltman socks I’ve done recently. That turquoise is one of the contrast colors in the Our Paths Cross socks I’m working on now (I’m about halfway through sock #2, by the way – I owe you photos of those, too!).
Happy Memorial Day weekend! We’ve about to head for the hills. The PA mountain laurel are in bloom and we’re hiking to see them.
