Thereâ€™s the Knit Picksâ€™ â€œTime Travellerâ€ colorway â€“ a limited edition from last fall inspired by our favorite Time Traveller, The Doctor .
And a pair of socks in just about the loudest yarn imaginable: Filatura di Crosa Maxime Print in a â€œcitrus circus insanityâ€ (or something). Kate’s working them both at the same time on dpns, using the War & Peace inspired method. “I love this method â€“ it guarantees no second sock syndrome, and lots and lots of amazed gasps from other sock knitters.”
Amy’s working on her Leftovers vest in Rowan Calmer…the first time she’s had the pleasure of making a sweater with this lovely stuff.
She managed to score closeouts on Calmer at the legendary home of such things, Colourway, when her friend Brenda casually mentioned it was near the train station in town. There was much plotzing and the yarn score ensued. Enough for a stripy vest for Â£20. I know!
For insurance, and because she’s like that, she added another ball of [discontinued! who discontinues black??] black and one of super-pale pink, recommended personally by the goddess of color, Barbara Gregory, once she got back Canada-side.
