I couldn't resist temptation and bought this Koigu KPPPM from the April sale at Yarnzilla. As I'm writing this post, there are still a few skeins of these colors left. I was really happy with both colors when they arrived. The colors are even better than I expected.
The pink skein on the left is color P155 and the yellow skein on the right is color P620. I got two skeins of each color. For those that have never tried Koigu, each 50 gram skein is 100% merino wool and approximately 175 yards. It takes two skeins for a pair of socks. I have made socks with Koigu before and the socks have survived both the washer and dryer.
When I ordered these skeins last week I thought that each color would probably become a pair of socks, but now that I've held them together I'm thinking I might make another chevron scarf with these colors when the first one is finished. If I do make another chevron scarf, I'm thinking of using the pattern modifications that Elizabeth at Trailing Yarn decided to use for her scarf.
By the time I actually get to this yarn though, it is completely possible I will have another idea on how to use it. Right now I'm just going to enjoy the nice spring pinks and yellows in these skeins.
In other knitting news: I'm still working on Wicked. I am almost to the point where I can separate the sleeves from the body and try the darn thing on for the first time. We'll see what tempting the gauge gods gets me. I'll post pictures of the outcome.
