This month, we had a stunning, sparkly superwash merino from the incomparable Zen Yarn Garden! Each skein was hand dyed for this box as a OOAK (one of a kind), so no two will look quite the same. And since this showstopper of a yarn looks amazing knit up in stockinette, I opted for a sock pattern with just a subtle touch of detail to really let the colours shine.
And for additional protection against the harsh, cold weather, I’ve included a bottle of hand lotion from Soak Wash Inc. This Toronto-based, women-run company has expanded on their line of rinse-free wool wash to include all kinds of useful things for knitters, and I’m entirely in love.
