Yarn Yumminess

I am in love with this yarn (okay, I say that about most yarns, but right now I have this yarn in my hands and it feels AMAZING!!)

This is my latest purchase from Antje @ Wunderwolle.

Whilst on my search for some hand-dyed local sock yarn I came across her Store and knew I just had to have some!

For my first projects to experience this yarn I have chosen the following colourways.

These are all Sock Yarn (Fingering) and are made with 75 Wool/25 Nylon Base.

First up:

wunderwolle - flieder im Wind

Flieder im Wind (Lilac in the wind)

This aptly named colourway is absolutely gorgeous!
When I was a little girl, everything had to be purple - so much so that I got really sick of that colour. This little skein is my first purchase of purple yarn for some socks for myself after all these years! And I am really looking forward to knitting this baby up!

My skein will be used in my February choice of sock pattern for the Sock-Along 2016 - Sea Wall by Tin Can Knits

Next up:

wunderwolle einzelgänger Strandwind

Strandwind (Beach Breeze)

Isn't this skein a beauty. I saw it and had to have it!
I don't really have a pattern in mind with this one, but as it is a unique skein, I am glad I got hold of it :)

I am contemplating knitting this up into the Smocked Guernsey Socks as I think the colourway could be perfect for those.

And my last must have for this yarn yumminess:

Wunderwolle wunderfullys Blumenwiese und Orange

Blumenwiese & Orange (Flowerfields and Orange)

This lovely couple of colour co-ordinated skeins will be made into a woven scarf or shawl sometime in the future (as soon as my Craftroom is ready and my loom is standing where it should ;))

Have you used Wunderwolle before?
What have your experiences been like?

Would you like to try some of Antje's yarn?

You would! Then you are in luck!

She has kindly offered to sponsor this year's Sock-Along and has donated some skeins for a couple of you to win :)

All you need to do to grab a chance at winning a skein or two for yourself is to take part in the KAL!

You can find out all about it HERE

See you soon for some more yarn yumminess :)
