After one gorgeous box of their glorious Merino Aran, I’ll admit that I was more than a little excited to see what else the Periwinkle Sheep had to offer and they definitely did not disappoint! Watercolors Sock Yarn is a gorgeous 75% Merino and 25% Nylon sock yarn with a tight twist that makes it super strong for socks but it’s amazing colors make it perfect for any dreamy accessories. With 460 yards in each one $25 skein, one should be plenty for most projects or pick a couple of your favorites for some truly magical color combos. **Grab it this weekend while it’s still in the boxes at 10% off.
There are so many things this yarn would be great for but with that nylon blend, my first thoughts are socks. With the fiber content and tight ply, any pair made with Watercolors Sock Yarn should last along time. I’m thinking a pair of Couplet socks would be yummy!
For crochet, the Multiplicity Lace shawl can be worn a million ways and would be gorgeous in a bright color of this yarn!
I love a chance to play to with color and I think a shawl like Daybreak is such a great opportunity. Pick two contrasting colors for this fun, striped shawl.
Fingering weight mitts are some of my favorite things ever. I don’t like to be cold but I also don’t like to feel bundled up so it’s the perfect combination. I’m thinking a pair of Et Frais would be adorable! Plus, you should have enough of the skein left over to make a matching hat!
Have a little fun with lace and make an Aloft Shawlette. This pretty shawlette has lace details and a unique construction, making it wide on one end and much narrower on the other.
I think I need to get a Bristol Hat on my needles straight away! The chevron pattern is adorable!
