• Image of Spilled Milk #10 - Blackberry Creek: Superwash Strong Heart or Boot Strap BFL Intentional Flash

Spilled Milk #10 - Blackberry Creek in the Intentional Flash style made with our Boot Strap BFL or Strong Heart base:

Purple, Dark Purple, and White! This is called a Spilled Milk colorway because it cannot ever be repeated:-) For an explanation of spilled milk, see below.

Sometimes things just don't go your way, do you know what I mean? Well, don't cry over spilled milk:-) This yarn was supposed to be an intentional flashing yarn with navy, purple, and white. But, what did I get? A beautiful mess. This is another addition to the Spilled Milk line at Fishknits. Anything that wasn't planned, that the yarnie messed up, that the dog tipped over, or that just didn't turn out like it was meant to be will be thrown into the Spilled Milk category. If it still has potential, it will be sold for the normal price of comparable yarn in the store, it just can't be repeated, mustn't be repeated, will not be intentionally repeated. So help me, it won't!!!

This yarn will spiral in 3 colors when knit on socks in the round, see the fifth picture. You may have to adjust your needle size to get the right tension for this to happen:-) I used a 1.5US (2.5mm) needle and 64 stitches.

Strong Heart: 80% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon 2-ply high twist. 400 yards, 100 grams. The two plies in this yarn plump together making this yarn is so soft. It includes a touch of nylon which makes it very strong, perfect for socks, mittens, hats.

Boot Strap: 80% Superwash BFL, 20% Nylon. 400 yards, 100 grams. A strong but still soft yarn, great for socks. Will wear well and look beautiful.

The test sock was a plain vanilla sock pattern knit on US 1 needles over 64 stitches. Your stitch size may be different than mine so the stripes may be slightly narrower or wider than mine.

~400 yds, 100 grams
7-8 stitches = 1 inch on US 1-3

Colors may vary some due to different dye lots or your monitor.
