Sock yarn and more sock yarn

Twizzlefoot - a new sock yarn from Mountain Colors arrived today.
53% Superwash Merino, 17% Domestic Wool, 17% Silk, 13% Nylon - hand dyed in Montana

410m / 450 yards on a skein

$37.75 a skein
I took this picture of the Twizzlefoot knit up when I was at TNNA in June. The ply of the yarn gives a great tweed effect. Something a bit different.

Pattern: Celo (free on Ravelry)
One skein of Twizzlefoot

Later in the day, Mr. Canpar brought in a box of Malabrigo Mechita. Oh my goodness. I want it all.

These swatches do no justice to the yarn. It is beautiful.

It's almost home time and we managed to get the Mechita on the shelf.

What can you knit with either yarn?
Ley Lines (pattern purchased on Ravlery) would look amazing. The pattern is easy to follow and fun to knit.

It's TV knitting time. Between the Jays and the four shows we have taped, Beth is going to be busy with the converter while I work on Holi Party.
