February's "Spoiler"

As you can probably guess, February is Valentine's month so I was totally inspired to do a colourway based on my two favourite things for this month - chocolate and roses. In making a semi-solid to incorporate both these colours, I tried out a new dyeing technique and am quite happy with the results achieved. This technique gives me the opportunity to do a semi-solid with more than one colour tone. Anxious to see how this one knits up for everyone...hope you are enjoying it! The colourway is called "Be Mine" and the base yarn is our Serenity sock yarn made of 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere and 10% nylon. Roses & chocolate definitely have to go with cashmere :-)
