Apparently Noro silk garden whilst it comes in 100 metre balls is dyed with 150 metre colour repeats. *big sigh* well, you live and learn!
So today I went back to the wool baa and the assistant got every ball of this colour way/dye lot out and I went through them to find one that started with black and grey and contained the rust and blue colours so it doesn’t look like a blind person chose the yarn for the socks. These socks are extra big socks for my poor Dad whose feet and ankles have swollen badly due to his poor health.
On a more positive note, remember this batt that I made at Bendigo on the Ashford drum carder?
