    Love WIPs! Can you tell me the brand and weight for the brown striped rag yarn you were making those adorable socks from? I missed that part. So excited for the shop update too!

    Sorry Sarah! They are Kroy Socks Brown Striped Ragg. It’s is considered a fingering weight, but definitely a heavier one, verging on a sport weight. I love them so much that I may have several (or several more than several) sitting in my JoAnn’s online shopping cart.

    Hi AB, you mentioned that there is a “trick” to removing the metallic smell from the hands while working with metallic needles. Do you know a source for the answer?

    I was trying to find it this week but had no luck at all. There seem to be products that remove brass odors, but without knowing what’s in them, I’m hesitant to trust my needles/hands/yarn to them.

    I enjoyed knitting the Groovy Socks and the SKYP socks, but I’m generally a vanilla sock knitter!
