A Milkbox Surprise

My milkbox amazes me! I thought it was the greatest that it actually fixes knitting problems, but the other night, I opened it and there was a GIFT inside! Maybe the "fix it fairy" thought she should pay rent? Anyway, it was a beautiful ball of sock yarn! It's called Tofutsies and made by the South West Trading Company
The amazing thing about this yarn is that one of the fibers is "Chitin". This is a fiber derived from Crab and Shrimp shells! It is very soft and knits 8sts/1". Of course I immediately had to get out my needles and start using it. My color is lime green, turquoise, and hot pink (#718). I absolutely love it! Thank you "O" magic milkbox!
