Sweet Sheep Sock Club Yarn Arrived!

I got my first skein of the Sweet Sheep's sock club yarn today.

I didn't think I would get it today because I thought today was a holiday. It is the Veterans Day observed day but the "real" day is tomorrow. So...there was mail delivery today, none tomorrow.

My hubby came in the house with a little package and there it was. It was Mama-E's colorway named Jolene. The color inspiration came from a friend of hers(Jolene) that challenged Mama-E to create a colorway based on a wonderful sunset she saw on the way to knit night.

Here is a photo of the yarn and Beanie, my other love dog.

I don't have any idea what to do with this yarn. The colors aren't ones I would choose right off the bat but I am becoming more open to using colors that are not my usual favorites. That is the beauty of yarn clubs. I open up to new horizons.

Any ideas for socks to make with this yarn?

Two of your favorite things. Dogs and yarn. I will miss you but I will be back at work sooner than I want to. :)

Hi Naomi!
Interesting colorway, but poor Chase says, "Don't make anything for me out of it!" Do you ever make dog clothes?
Love-Terry
