Been away to Cologne since last Thursday. I got back on Monday evening but haven't had the time to update. My sock yarns from the Wollmeise came in the day before I left for Cologne and so I had to race around to one of my friend to make yummy yarn cakes out of these beauties:
From left to right: Drachenblut, Amazonas, Iris Sibirica
They all turned into these:
Okay, those are just the Drachenblut and Iris Sibirica...the Amazonas had already transformed over the trip to and back from Cologne:
Started: 08th March 2007
Yarn: Rohrspatz & Wollmeise superwash sock yarn, 100% wool; colourway "Amazonas" (Amazon)
Needle: 2.5 mm/ US #1-2 Addi Turbos (using MagicLoop method)
Pattern: Universal Toe-up Sock using Magic Cast-On
Apart from that, I also got something from Cologne:
Zitron's "Trekking pro natura" sock yarn: 75% New Wool, 25% Bamboo; colourway # 1640
Colinette's Jitterbug sock yarn, 100% superwash Merino; colourway #67 "Copperbeach"
I actually bought just the Jitterbug. Thing was, I went to MaschenKunst, a LYS in Cologne owned by Daniela Johansonova, the maker and voice of the Secret Knitting Podcast! I got the Trekking pro natura kind of for free. "Kind of" because I am to test-knit it for her..but still: *woot!* How cool is that?
