Watermelon socks

Kiwiyarns has knitted some watermelon socks
from Happy-go-knitty self-striping BFL sock yarn.

I have to say they look delicious!

Wednesday, November 14, 2012!

I have waited and waited and now it has finally arrived: 100% mulberry silk!

It's luscious and soft and the sheen is just amazing. It has that typical smell of pure silk.

I will dye it on Friday. Aqua? Denim blue? Beetroot? Dark red?
