Here’s a wee something to perk up your spirits! This is the Candombe colourway from Manos del Uruguay Alegria. I bought this beauty through The True North Yarn Co which is in Barrie, ON. I placed my order online Sat. Mar 29th, received a shipping notice Tue. Apr. 1st and the yarn arrived Thu. Apr. 3rd. Fantastic service!!

Knit a rainbow! This toe-up sock knitting pattern – Spectral Dispersion Socks – is great for all those lovely multi-coloured sock yarns. Just look at the ‘before’ and ‘after’. The yarn – Indigodragonfly’s Merino Sock yarn in ‘Beige’.
These socks use the following techniques:
• Judy’s Magic Cast On
• Fleegle Heel construction (modified)
• Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off
And we’re having a Spring Potpourri KAL in our Ravelry group – great place to try these out!
