    I’m working with expression fiber arts single ply in the ephemera colorway in the terribly simple shawl pattern, which is all garter. The little pops of color that dot across the garter ridges are a treat. I’ve loved this knit. About to cast off the shawl today.

    I like my speckles to be really tiny… I bought blacks socks with multicoloured speckles… Soooo beautiful! I also really love the speckles on the sneak peek. Can’t wait to see what it is!

    I’m working on a Flax Light (my first top-down sweater!) with Knit Picks’ Andromeda Speckle. I’m loving all the speckled yarn right now. Literally all of it, lol.

    I’m definitely on board with keeping it simple. So far, my favorite use of speckled yarn is for a simple pair of socks! And I tend to like the speckles a little more subtle in color. I have used commercial yarn for this and am currently waiting for a Hedgerow yarns skein to come my way!

    I see fabulous speckly yarns from indie dyers on Instagram every day, and it’s so hard to resist buying them! I have my eye on a peachy one from Flock Fibre Studio, and I’m scheming about making a toddler sweater from it.

      I have the EXACT same problem! I’ve been on a bit of a speckled stash enhancement binge lately….
