Pink Granite niddy closeup

6.9 oz., 508 yards, 3 ply, 16 wpi (sportweight)


It's the Pink Granite colorway of a BMFA Sheep 2 Shoe kit. It was great to spin -- my best superwash merino experience, yet, though the pink and white parts felt nicer than the black parts.


Unfortunately, the weight on the kit was short. This, plus about 12 grams of leftovers (which I Navajo plied) yielded final products that were about an ounce short of what was supposed to be in the kit. I lost only a tiny bit to nepps, so it's not that. I'm halfway tempted to write to BMFA and ask for my missing ounce, just so I can knit knee-highs and not worry about running out of yarn.
