It is baby yellow, and not one of those more brighter shades that you can sometimes get. I hope it shows up yellow and not whiteish. The yarn is acrylic I believe, but I don't know all the details offhand because I don't have that handy.
Ok, that takes care of the yellow. Now for the yarny goodness! Look what I got today in the mail!!
It's the Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush and some sock yarn! I've only been able to just glance through the book, but it looks great and there are some patterns that I'm itching to try. The yarn is 2 skeins each (as you can no doubt count) of, on the left, Knit Picks 'Ballet Dancing' (41% cotton, 39% wool, 13% nylon, 7% elastic), and on the right, Knit Picks 'Gumball Parade' (75% superwash wool, 25% nylon).
I haven't used either of these yarns because sock yarn is very limited around this area, or so it seems. There isn't much of a selection or colour variety to choose from, so I decided to try ordering some. I've read a lot of good things about Knit Picks, and decided to go with that this time. I am looking forward to trying these yarns and am hoping I have great results with both of them. I'll keep you posted on what socks they become once I start them.
I am attempting to get a couple of other sock patterns knit up first, and I want to get into my stash and use up some of that so that I can have a good excuse to get more yarn. I am thinking I should get some mittens done with the stash, and make a scrap afghan in a granny square pattern as well.
I'm off to study for a test now, and hopefully I can stay focused on that instead of the new yarn and knitting...
