[loudtwitter] Microblogging

Sometimes this is the only blogging I manage to do. Feel free to skip it as is your choice and prerogative but then you may not find out about what I did yesterday and/or how I was feeling (health, mood, etc.) as well as any links I have made a note of for my own and your interest and the odd haiku that I post there …

I have fallen in love …

… with a new sock yarn. A while ago I ordered some Regia Silk (colour 0053)and it arrived about a month and a half ago. I forgot all about it until today when I cast on the first sock of a new pair for myself. It is heavenly! So soft! Even hubby who has declared that he hates wool socks has said he would wear socks made out of this!

55% New Wool (it says Merino on my ball-band)
25% Polyamide
20% Silk
Machine washable on wool cycle (my ball-band says cool tumbleable but their site says no tumble)
210m/50g ball

Bliss. And I thought their Regia Bamboo was soft and squishy (compared to the 'normal' Regia Color) and the pair I have mede out of that is comfy but this...

Ugh. Not the best of photos. Could do with lightening when I get around to it.
