Two Identical Socks

We photographed the new colours of merino light this afternoon. Here are a few. They are available in the store and on the website.
This is Devil's Advocate.

Lots of boxes arrived today. We have new Regia Pairfect colours.
REGIA PAIRFECT – A new dimension in sock knitting! This innovation by REGIA makes it incredibly simple to knit two identical self-patterned socks from one skein. 
It’s very easy: The yellow starter thread - which comes from inside the yarn skein - marks the beginning of each sock. Simply cut off the yellow starter thread and begin knitting the first sock. After the first sock is completed, unwind the yarn to the next yellow starter thread and cut it off. Then simply knit the second sock.

From Louisa Harding we received Amitola Brushed.

A fine Mohair blend that knits to a sport/light DK weight in long colour changes. The quality of the fibres are apparent in a swatch - a soft, delicate halo surrounds defined stitches highlighted by the cotton binder. Good meterage and a strong colour palette make this yarn a great addition to the Louisa range.
60% mohair
25% cotton
15% wool

300m/328 yards on a 100gram ball.

All 6 colours are in stock.

Great news. The Lykke needles have arrived in the US and we should see them early next week.
Now it's time to work on Fantasy Football. Playoffs start this week and we're in second place. Our tight end decided to do something stupid last week and is suspended. Now we need to find a new TE.
