Guessing Game

Today I'm having a little guessing game.  I won't call it a contest as there is no prize.  Here is a picture of a sock yarn that I couldn't resist even though I have enough yarn to stock any good-sized store.  I liked the yarn but I also liked the name of it.  It's mostly gray with one splash of bright red.  If you have a mind to leave a comment with your guess, or tell me what you would call this yarn, it will be fun to read your ideas.  I'll post the answer tomorrow.  If you already know the answer, please don't post it!

I'd also welcome ideas on what to make.  Which sock pattern?  A shawlette?  Which design?  Something else?  A scarf, maybe?

I started the second S & S sock last night and knitted while talking to friends who came over for the evening.  It's going quickly and I'll be turning the heel later today.  Yay....another finished project is coming up very soon.

Today I'm going to take a little road trip, driving about an hour west of Calgary to the town of Canmore.  I've heard that it's very beautiful, and oh, there is a yarn store, too, and it's open on Sunday!

I have no clue what this yarn is, but it's gorgeous and I would buy it in a second!

My first glance at that (before reading the post) was "sock monkey" - I can't wait to see how you knit it up.

I know what it is - but I bought the skein you were eyeing lst Thursday! So. I'm in the process of designing a special little shawlette for it that makes the most of the color... I'll keep you posted :)

When I first saw it I thought, "Just a little drop of blood." but decided no one would name a yarn that. My second thought is, "A little red is better than none." Love the yarn and that you are having fun.
