Things From the Mailman

Today I received some FUN sock yarn in the mail. Awhile back when I got my big order from Knit Picks, I mean, that was exciting too, but that was all full of neutrals and pretty basic stuff, this one was my FUN package.

I received one skein of The Lemonade Shop's Toxic Oreo.

I think speckled yarn is one of my favourites right now. I've never been a big fan of the way variegated yarn looks but I love how exciting it is to knit with, with all those colour changes and what not. With this, you get colour changes (LOTS of colour changes) without the pooling issues I usually seem to run into.  

The issue that I'm having with this is that the yarn is so busy that I don't want to anything complicated because it will just get lost and everything I'm thinking of just doesn't seem like it's going to look good. Should I just stick with a plain stockinette sock or something with a wide rib? Any other ideas?


They also carry a colourway Mega Stuffed Toxic Oreo, but I may have to work my way up to that one.
