A pair, at last



Seems like this pair has taken forever -- most likely because they got very little attention while I played around with crochet. But they're done, and I'm happy. 'Nuff said.

These are really nice. Well executed, terrific colpur and pattern and well shown off!

Oh, they're so beautiful! I love that color! What yarn did you use? (It might say on your blog--I'll read down a bit...)

Barb -- I did mention them before, but it was a while ago. The color is "Marmalade Swoop" and the yarn is from Edinburgh, Scotland -- the Yarn Yard, if memory serves. I'm assuming it's spun by a major mill, and then dyed by Yarn Yard (forgive me, I'm blanking on the owner's name), because it's the usual wool/nylon sock yarn mix, but I don't know for sure.
