Something New

(Ignoring the fact I’ve disappeared off the face of the  blogosphere for a good 4 weeks…)

I got some lovely NEW yarn, and it’s so lovely I just had to tell you about it.

Introducing Max… A new yarn from my fave NZ yarn dyer, Vintage Purls.  Max is an 8ply sock yarn- the only NZ one that I know of.  Like the VP Sock yarn, it is 75% Superwash N.Z. Merino / 25% Nylon, and it is supposed  to be knit up on 4.00mm – 5.00mm needles.  Each  100g skein has  208 metres / 227 yards, enough to knit a pair of women’s socks (I hope!)

 

And… a skein of a lovely semi-solid green Moritz- I’ve been all about green for some time now, and this is simply gorgeous!

Limited Edition - Moritz

You might need to stalk Vintage Purls’ website as this is all out of stock right now – maybe you can save your pennies for some. It’s simply gorgeous!

    Gorgeous! Naughty me joined the VP sock club and my first installment was a stunning red skien of Max. It’s going to be a hat though 🙂
