Book Yarn, Part VIII

It’s been an awesome day at Chez Violence.  As of close of business today, I have sixteen (out of an eventual twenty) of the projects for Book the Second here and blocked and petted and cooed over and tucked away safe out of reach of mischievous kittens.  I know it is unbecomingly immodest, but if you got me alone in a quiet corner, I might just confess to being really really pleased with all of these projects.

On the left is Schaefer Yarn Company in Chris in the color Pomegranate.  This is a soft, lofty, 80/20 merino nylon yarn.  It’s lovely and fat and round and is just perfect for hats or mitts or just about anything else you can imagine.  You could even make socks with it if you were feeling the need for something warm and slipper-like.

On the right is Schaefer Yarn Company in Nichole in the color Thistle.  It’s also an 80/20 mix, but much thinner than Chris.  My love for Nichole is well documented and undying.  It is easily one of my top five sock yarns, giving socks that are both soft and sturdy.  I knew from the start that I wanted to work with it again for this project.
