Fiber Friday - Zitron - Avanti

This yarn is the same color and stripping pattern as the popular Trekking XXL 100 sock yarn - just in a worsted weight. I love all the bright colors. I bought these skeins awhile ago with the intentions of making a scarf.

I have a skein of the sock yarn in this color too. I should have pulled it out for comparison here. The colors seem a lot brighter here in the worsted weight than they do in the sock weight.

I don't really have any immediate plans to start knitting this up. I'm still working on my Noro Sakura sweater. I should have an update for you on the sweater next week. I've also been using my spindle. I"ll show those results too. It is getting easier, but it isn't anything to jump up and down about yet.

I fondled this yarn in my LYS, while I was waiting for the Ladies to tally up my purchases. I did not buy any of it, but sure would have liked. It's so pretty.

Pretty colorful. It should knit up really nice....
Do you still have the small mittens available? If so I have a friend here that would probably be the right size. I could pick them up when I'm down there.

That yarn is pretty. I didn't realize there was anything like Trekking in a worsted...
