Plucky Booties

An FO! An FO! Hark!



I made these beauties as a test knit for Sarah aka The Fabulous Plucky Knitter for her upcoming LYS event. I knit them and then she added these beautiful orange and white vintage buttons. Aren't they adorable? Oy!

Can we talk about this yarn for a moment? It is TO.DIE.FOR. This is her sport weight superwash merino in Tippi Blue (named after Tippi Hedron, of course). I have knit with many a yarn in my day...and let me tell you...this stuff is at the top of my list. I'm not just saying this because Miss Sarah is one of my favorite people in the universe either...this stuff is top notch. So, go buy some. Support an indie dyer. Once you do, you'll be addicted like me. And you won't regret it.
