A beautiful skein of wonderfully soft sock yarn: Paca-Peds from The Alpaca Yarn Company. Plus two surprises: a nice card, and some lovely co-ordinating stitch markers. Let's have a closer look at the yarn, shall we?
Note the unusual prominence of the label in this picture? That's because I named this yarn. Little ol' (ok, big ol') Piggy! I was one of 10 lucky yarnies whose suggestions were chosen for the 10 new colourways in the company's recent "Name That Yarn!" contest.
Besides the priceless glory and bragging rights, each winner receives a free skein of "their" yarn. (So no breaking of the yarn diet -- yippee!) Check out all the colourways here.
Thanks so much to the friendly folks at The Alpaca Yarn Company -- Beth, Tasha and Angela -- for the fun contest, and the lovely prize.
Now here's the big question: Do you think I should use this skein of "Spring in My Step" for my first pair of socks? Or should I save it until I'm comfortable with sock knitting?
