My husband was gone or 4 days on a bike trip. He rode by a yarn store near Florence, OR...I don't know the name of it... and went inside and bought me some yarn! :happydance:
He told the sales person that I knit and like purple. She asked what I knitted and when she mentioned socks, he said yeah, I knitted socks. She told him I would like this yarn. She was correct. So now I have more sock yarn! (I think I have 9 or 10 skeins now and I don't always knit socks.)
Anyway he bought me Kraemer Sterling Silk and Silver. I have admired this yarn many times but only have seen it in a solid. This is striped or variegated. It is called Victorian Dusk. I could only find the solid colors of this yarn or the white at various stores on line so I think the multicolor must be new.
It's very beautiful, I'm considering making something very special out of it it since it has the silver in it, perhaps something that is not socks. It may be a while till I decide.
You can't see the silver sparkles in the photo, but they are definitely there.
