In Spanish Alegria means Joy. I have to say when you knit with this hand-painted sock yarn from Manos del Uruguay all you feel is joy! The colors alone are enough to brighten any grey day, then there is the softness of the superwash merino. Alegria is the perfect choice for any fingering weight project, from socks to shawls and even baby projects. I've knit a couple shawls and love them, I've seen socks knit with it and they are amazing! If you are not into the super bights above, you can try a more subdue palette like the skeins below, which I think are perfect Autumn colors!
