I haven't done lots of knitting so I don't have loads of experience of different types of yarn. Just loads of lists of ones I'd like to try. I would love to try something in kidsilk haze and in any sort of Rowan cotton.
I have made lots of socks recently, mostly plain ones and have been really lucky to find a lady who sells lovely sock yarn that she dyes herself. Unfortunately, I don't have any photos of the finished projects as I have passed them on as presents. She lives on the Isle of Harris and has some lovely yarn. I have taken a photo here but it doesn't really do the yarn justice.
It is excellent to knit with and the colours are really vibrant. Her website photos are much better than mine so please check it out if you have a spare minute and see what the colours are really like.
Her company is Calana Crafts and she is here. I have used her seascape range of sock yarns.
