The Blue Moon Fiber Arts heavyweight yarn works up so quickly. I have already finished the first Thuja sock after just starting it last night after dinner. Sport-weight yarn may be my new favorite thing.
Now for the bad news--the Ravenscroft dye rubbed off on my fingers, my nails and my Brittany Birch needles. I hope the colors don't fade too much in the actual sock. Here's a photo of the 4 stained needles and the 5th needle of the set that shows their original color:
The intended recipient seemed happy with the first sock, but he hasn't yet been home to try it it on.
