Ravenclaw Yarn Arrives
Fortunately I hit gold with my first try. I have made a couple orders with kpixie before, and I have to say I am always really pleased with them. Not only do they tend to have very good prices, but since they tend to ship the same day and are so close to me, I often (like this time) get my yarn the very next day. Amazing!
I ordered Louet Gems in French Blue and Sandalwood, since they were suggested by both the Hogwarts Sock Swap and atypicalknit. With the yarn in hand though, I sort of wish I had gone with Ginger rather than Sandalwood. Oh well, you live and learn I guess.
This is my progress so far. I am working my own favorite toe-up style (which I might discuss more in another post) with the Sandalwood for the toes and heels. I haven't decided on the heel style quite yet. A short row heel looks good in a contrasting color, but I am also quite fond of a peasant heel as well.
