Have No Fear- Brick House is Here!

Ooh-la-la! Yarny goodness has arrived. I'm so excited- I made my first etsy purchase the other day (per the recommendation of Jean) and had been eagerly awaiting its arrival ever since.


It's a 100% Superwash Merino Wool, Rainbow-Dyed Colorway: Brick House, brought to you by Fearless Fibers. I was tempted to cast on and swatch tonight, but the prospect of hand winding 550 yards (!!!) was just not thrilling my knitting nerves...
It's just so pretty... I'm oooh-ing and aaahhh-ing, and trying to decide which sock pattern to try with it... and the fabric it's laying on? Well, my sister was thinning her stash and gifted me a while back- I think I'll be gifting my daughters with some matching skirts here very soon! I considered cutting them out tonight, but I'm having too much fun with the back of my Eyelet Cardigan and another fair isle hat... and pouring over sock patterns...
Happy knitting-
ali

Oh that's nice stuff right there, and great yardage too. I really like that color - one of the best reds I've seen. Very redhead friendly. :) Definitely bookmarking that shop.

Such nice fabric that your sister gave you. It will make very cute skirts indeed.

I love Fearless Fibers. I'm knitting socks with her yarn and it's going to be my softest pair ever. I love the colour you picked.

Oooh, such a pretty color! Yeah, hand winding the 550 yds has been giving me pause, too.
