At Last! Socks That Rock
Last weekend, Leftcoastknitter and I went to the Grand Opening of a new yarn shop,Purlescence. The shop is cozy and friendly and one of the owners is Nathania, the creater of the 12:01 Pumpkin basket pattern.
The highlight of the trip was that I finally got to fondle the much talked about Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock. They had some lucious colorways so it was hard to restrain myself and pick out only a few to bring home.
First up is a colorway called Lagoon. It's meant for a gift, but I liked it so much, I bought one for me, hehe.
Deep teal, maroons, greens, purples and dark pink
Last up are some socks I'm sending to my buddy Zknitter for a swap. This is Sock Candy yarns (96% cotton) in the Lapis colorway:
And I close with Lolly's Soctoberfest question of the week:
Where have your handknit socks been?
I just learned sock knitting this year and haven't been able to afford any exotic vacations so my socks have stayed local.
What is the furtherst they have traveled?
