Shibui on a Sunday

Today was the sunniest day we've had for a long time and even though it's only early February, it reminds me of the spring, which can't be that far away.

The other day I received a fabulous and unexpected present from Karin. It was the most wonderful sock yarn one can imagine: Shibui Sock in a so, so beautiful color (it looks like caramel). Yesterday, when Karin had invited a few knitters over, she and I started a Shibui knit along. I casted on for a Cookie A. pattern, Marlene from the latest knit.1 magazine. I love it already!

I'm using my new Knit Picks dpn's - only 15 cm long - and the combination of these needles and my new Shibui yarn makes knitting such a pleasure. ... It's true!

So pretty! I agree with Lolly: the pattern and the yarn really work well together!
