      It is a lot of fun! I can’t wait to see how it turns out eventually. Its the latest incarnation of my Mrs Miniver sock project, which I started last year.

      Thanks, Pam! The yarn is some gorgeous 4 ply silk The Natural Dye Studio. It’s wonderfully soft and silky to knit with. Watch out for the next episode soon 🙂
