This month's theme for the Phat Fiber Sampler Box is 'Under the Sea'. I did actually get my samples to them this month in a timely manner-so Go Team Stacey!
This sample is called 'I'm on a Boat' inspired by the SNL song by Andy Samberg. I find this song to hilariously awesome-I even have a shirt that says it. So, I wanted to do a self striping sock yarn that was based on nautical stripes, because what else do you wear on a boat?
'I'm on a Boat' is on my 100% SW Merino 2 ply yarn-the skein in the shop measures a little light so it is 96 g/approx. 380 yd.
The second sample I sent in was 'Release The Kraken'. I am still experimenting with layering on of colors and this one turned out just as it was in my head. Dark and murky with pops of a bright. Oh, I imagine that this will knot into an absolutely fabulous finished object.
'Release The Kraken' is on 80% Merino/20% Silk/2 ply lace.
