A totally picturesque blog today of socks...huge 16 skein sock yarn order from Blue Moon Fiber Arts' "Socks That Rock", socks knit by a friend and socks knit by ME! Enjoy!

STR colorways: Queen Rock, Iolite, Azure Malachite, County Clare, Jade, Fire on the Mountain
STR colorways: Watermelon Tourmaline, Pebbles, Blue Moonstone, Queen Rock, Iolite

(there were two Ruby Slippers and two Fire on the Mountains, just to clarify...the rest are just part of another picture)
*I must admit here that I did a little drooling over these yarns, wiping them off carefully afterwards, of course, and LOTS of rubbing on my cheek. I DID think about doing the "breast cleavage hug" also known as the BCH, but I know my fellow knitters would probably rather I NOT do this to their yarn, so I restrained myself. Barely.*
Now, on to the socks that I knitted for my sister, Kim. I used Opal Yarn and used my own "pattern"...I made the socks unmatched on purpose for fun and I think they look very unique like this. This yarn was very fun to work with and I liked being surprised at what striping came next....
Finally, last but not least, is my friend Dan's FIRST ever knitted socks! They look awesome and he did a great job on them. He worked so hard on them...I wish my first pair of socks had looked like this!
Have a super SockORiffic day.....more updates on my Trekking socks next time...it's been raining since the knitalong started, so no hiking or trekking for me...except to the mailbox or out to the store...not at all exciting.
