So, the skein ended up coming home with me.
I showed it to my mom and asked her what she wanted it to be. She's a crocheter but doesn't know too much about things involving fingering weight yarn so I made a few suggestions. This skein is Superwash Corriedale and nylon, which isn't a fiber you see a whole lot, so I was excited to try it and I knew it would make some great options, socks, mittens, a cowl. There are a lot of things this skein could become.
She chose mittens. I wound up the yarn right away of course, intending to get started immediately but as usual, time slipped away from me until I was looking around for something to start this month for HPKCHC and I found this skein.
I'm so glad I did because I am loving the way it's knitting up!
In the meantime, back to the needles.
