I’d ordered the Fratello kit from Yarnissima on Sept 24th, thinking it would take a while to get here from the Netherlands. It turned up on October 3rd, a mere nine days later, and packed with goodies:

Fratello sock kit.

It comes with a skein of coveted Wollmeise yarn in a rich brown, and some chocolate. Quantum was very interested in the feather. The pattern looks very detailed and it was all packaged like a gift.

The Fratello kit was still in stock on Friday, along with a couple of others. I like the blue of the Spina di Pesce kit. The yarn feels a lot like cotton and it smells like fruit, same as my other skein of Wollmeise. Given the size of my feet, I’d have a LOT of yarn left over from a pair of socks, 574 yards is way more than most sock yarn skeins.
