My plan for today was to show you a photo of my finished Reyna. I finished it on July 31st and planned to at least have it on the blocking mats if not already blocked and dried. But something got in the way.
|Out of Winter knit with Sock Labs Stroll|
I mentioned yesterday that Knit Picks had sent me a two skeins of their new Sock Labs speckled yarn to play with. Knit Pick's timing couldn't have been better. Mr. Mailman was leaving the yarn on my porch as I sat in the dentist's chair across town, frantically binding off Reyna.
As soon as I got home from the dentist, I tore into the package, photographed the yarn and began searching Ravelry for the perfect pattern. I couldn't decide. I started with a list of eight designs which I narrowed down for yesterday's Three on Thursday post. I asked for your opinion...
And then couldn't stand to wait. I chose Out of Winter, which was odd because it was my least favorite of the three. But the moment I started knitting it, I was hooked. I'm loving the pattern, it's super simple. And the yarn! I've knit with Stroll before so I knew the yarn would be a joy to work with. And the speckles! It's so much fun to watch the speckles appear.

And on a woo-woo note, at the beginning of this post I mentioned I'd bound off my Reyna shawl on July 31st. Guess what I was doing exactly three years ago. Yep! You guessed it. I bound off my first Reyna on July 31, 2016. How freaky is that??
