A treat found in my mailbox a few days ago ...

Two skeins of Indigodragonfly Merino Silk 4ply Sock (50% superwash merino, 50% silk) in the Knitty Anniversary colourway (deep breath now):
50 Shades of Bazinga; or, When Your Stitch Count is Off, Your Skein is 2 Yards Shorter Than the Pattern, and the Yarn Gods Have Decided Now is the Time for a Needle Malfunction
My skeins look paler than the official photo because of the high silk content ... I knew that would happen when I made my fibre choice and they've turned out exactly as I wanted; believe me, there's still a lot of colour vibrancy in the yarn when viewed in RL. The evil plan is to turn all that pretty string into this: Anne Hanson's Pea Vines. Only mine will be sweet pea vines because my skeins are all the colours of the leaves and flowers of sweet peas. :-)
