Sock Blanket Saturday

Amy and I recently made a joint purchase from kn!tp!icks online.  I picked up a couple of cheap variegated
yarns in their stoll multi line and stoll tonal lines.  I'll be covering them one at a time, just to drag out the blogging foder.  ;)  This one is the "pansy multi" colorway. 

It knits up pretty much how you'd expect a 75% superwash merino and 25% nylon skein of yarn to knit up.  It's nice, but not niiice-if you know what I mean.  However, I am happy about other attributes.   Such as the fact that it's just $3.99 for a 50 gram ball.  I didn't plan on making any socks out of this stuff (too rough), so I didn't want a whole lot of leftovers.  I also really like the color.  I like that it's mainly dark purple with just a speckling of light purple, and though you can't see it in the above photo, an additional dark red purple. 

Now I just have to figure out what to knit with the remaining 40 grams to clear it out of the stash.

I suggest baby booties.
