    Falling in love

    I bought this yarn from Making Stories a few months ago and just started knitting socks with it.
    I am smitten. It's a dream to knit with. Love the colors with slight white flecks of the linen. Easily becoming a favorite sock yarn.

    longlasting yarn

    I bought my skeins of Alb Lino because I already knit a pair of socks with the yarn and it holds up great! The colors I ordered are beautiful, just what I expected, how fun that you started carrying it :)
