Good morning everyone...and especially to my blog contestants! I'm REALLY excited to hear from everyone today on the topic of SOCK YARN! But, first, here are a few pictures of the 100% Chinese Duke Silk yarn that I hand-dyed.....the skeins have LOTS of yardage and have that cool, soft, slightly crunchy feel when you touch it....tell me what you think! I'll be adding these three skeins to my Etsy store (see right for link) by this evening, I hope.
Picture 1: ("Melon Sundae" colorway)...cool cantaloupe and juicy watermelon.
Picture 2: ("Lakeside" colorway)....refreshing water, cool grass and blue skies.
Picture 3: ("Summer Garden" colorway)....sweet blueberries, crunchy carrots and leafy lettuce.
Okay...now, for Sock yarn....my favorites are:
1. Socks That Rock (superwash merino wool...amazing colorways and patterns)
2. Lorna's Laces Shephard Sock (superwash wool...oh, the colors!)
3. Celestial Merino by Lucy Neatby (superwash merino...fantastic colors....feels just like Koigu but better)
(I've bought lots of Opal, but have yet to knit with it. Will be trying Knit Picks Sock Garden soon. Like Mountain Colors Barefoot and also Regia.)
What are YOUR favorite SOCK YARNS??? (with link if you have it)
Have a Sock-o-Riffic Day!
