This is Tofutsies sock yarn from Southwest Trading Co. It is a blend of cotton, wool, soysilk, and chitin. (The crab shell stuff, chitin, is pronounced Kite-in, I think. ) I got it from The Taming of the Ewe in Jacksonville, AL. I guess that is my Valentine cactus in the back. (Darlene, it is not me that is making you buy sock yarn, it is Lime and Violet. Just keep that in mind, hee hee.) I finished the DH Trekking socks last night, but I have to redo one of the toes, as the sock was a little too short.
Look, I have a new baby. My method of African Violet propagation is to stick a leaf in potting soil and to be greatly surprised when a plantlet sprout appears. So, this leaf of Ness’ Orange Pekoe has been sitting in soil for over a year. I had to have that one because of the name, as I am a tea drinker. The leaves have pink edges, and the flowers are kind of orange.
