Yesterday's yarn plus sock update

Today is bright grey (and snowing) instead of the darker greyish pink of last night ... so at least the colours aren't skewed.

First up ... the new-to-the-stash Pur and Zauberball wools ... the Pur is especially interesting to the touch, as being so thick and slightly felted gives it an almost foamlike squishiness (but with the lovely, soft touch of very fine quality wool)

Plus the socks ... got the heels mostly turned on my pink/purple stripes on Friday night, finishing up the second heel at the hairdresser's yesterday (and I consider it a significant improvement in my sock skills that I COULD complete the turning in such a distracting environment ... up until now, heels have been a strictly-at-home-in-peace-and-quiet portion of a project). And here are Mom's as well, all done and merely awaiting grafting (I prefer daylight rather than artificial light for grafting, especially with dark yarn, and the plan of snatching the brief bit after a workday sometime during the week just didn't pan out ... so, hopefully, I'll get to them today)
