Yarn Part the Second

As I mentioned earlier, when I was at Sock Summit, I had the marvelous experience of picking out yarn from several dyers who had asked me to design socks for them.  It was great fun, even if it still feels a little bit like crime.

One of the talented dyers who asked me to work with her yarn is Lisa, the force behind Dicentra Designs Fiber Arts.  After much indecision, I picked out a lovely smooshy skein of purple yarn in a lovely 50-50 alpaca merino mix.  The yarn has somehow turned into socks, which then magically turned into a pattern.  I’ll be putting a call for testers out on Ravelry early next week.  I’ll also be posting pictures early next week.  I’d have them now, but the fall has been marked by torrential downpours around here, and I need a nice sunny day to get a photo that does this yarn justice.  It will be worth the wait!
