Happy Star Wars Day!
There’s been an abundance of Star Wars themed yarn this year, and I have fallen for many of them. After completing my Brandy Milk Punch socks, I cast on a new pair using Two SistersYarn Company’s These Are Not The Droids You're Looking For.
I stumbled across this skein in February on Etsy. It was the only one left, and it's dyed on their Canyon Creek MCN Base, which is 80% superwash merino wool, 10% cashmere, and 10% nylon. The striping sequence is five rows R2-D2 blue followed by Storm Troopers white, Millennium Falcon grey, Chewbacca brown, BB-8 orange, and the First Order black. I have completed two repeats, and I'm loving the color combinations.
And speaking of droids, Must Stash Yarns is having a Star Wars KAL. To determine my allegiance – Empire or Rebels – I took a quiz. And it looks like I’m going to knit for the Dark Side. My skein of Rey arrived in the mail this week, but I’m going to cast on using R2D2.
And in other non-socking knitting news, I am almost finished with the first Where You Knit Club yarn and pattern. I hope to have FO pics next week.
Until then, May the 4th be with you!
