I've begun the first of the Bayerische socks.
I've also made a start on another cabled project - Ester.
This one is part of the Ester KAL.
I find it curious that I am making two cabled projects with tweedy red yarns. I originally intended to make the Bayerische socks with a plain teal coloured yarn, but made a last minute decision to try out the tweedy pinky reddy TOFUtsies yarn that I got from the EcoYarns stall at the craft fair a couple of months ago. Then when I decided to use Patons Jet for Ester (I knew the yarn would be the right weight), I was drawn to this tweedy red which I think is a new colourway this winter - I don't remember it from last year. I don't remember making any conscious link with these decisions. Perhaps my sub-conscious has it's own agenda.
Or perhaps I just like tweedy red yarns.
