You know it's cold when...

This happens. With the heat on in the room. I came back in after my ablutions to make the bed, threw back the covers to straighten rearrange the pillows, and found a very surprised... well... see for yourself.
The socks, after one day of practically nonstop knitting, continue to look the way they're supposed to. I'm beginning to wonder what's going on... The Mini Mochi is lovely. Squishy, rich colors, soft, doesn't pull apart at all, and has great stitch definition. My one complaint is that the dye seems to be rubbing off on my fingers; this is minor as far as I'm concerned. I'll just wash the socks with vinegar when they're finished and maybe that'll fix it. Like I said: MINOR. Definitely not enough to make me stop wanting to use the yarn or yell at the company for what could easily be just a one-off, especially since I suspect it's fixable with a good dose of vinegar.

That yarn is gorgeous! Who makes it?

Crystal Palace. It's vaguely akin to the Kauni, but it's singlespun and much, much softer. I'm really enjoying it... must. get. more!
