This went off in the post yesterday. It's recipient doesn't know it's on it's way, and I don't think she reads my blog so I'm not spoiling any surprises. I wish I had though to take a photo of the yarn on the skein, it has knitted so very differently to how I imagined, and I do hope you can see from the photos how beautifully the colours work.
edited to add thanks to rooknits - she has pointed out that there is a photo of the yarn on Dee's Blog you just have to scroll down a little till you get to the Sojourn colour.
Sophia is beautiful to knit with. Remember the old question, "what's lighter, a ton of coal or a ton of feathers?" I'd swear 100g of Sophia is lighter than 100g of other sock yarns ;-). I used all but 1g of two skeins, there are three extra pattern repeats but only six border rows.
I'm not sure I can brave the 6:00 pm stampede very often - I've only done it twice - but I will have to knit with this yarn again at some stage. I do have some Sophia 2-ply laceweight stashed away that I bought at Wonderwool Wales, I'll have to try that soon.

It's a lovely sunny day. I'm off in a tick to spend it with mum. She had a Garden Centre voucher for her birthday, so I think that's where we are headed if the rain holds off.
