New Order

Sitting of the sofa for most of two football games Sunday afternoon (with the the New Order technobeat an earworm in my head) I had plenty of time to finish my first socks of 2007: Blue Monday socks for Soctopia.

I chose a skein of TOFUtsies sock yarn by Southwest Trading Company. I thought a "healthy" dose of soy would be a great way to start out the new year and if I slack in my diet, at least my feet can be comfy. 50% Superwash wool, 25% Soysilk, 22.5% cotton and 2.5% Chitin. According to the label, chitin is a fiber made from shrimp and crab shells and naturally antibacterial.

So it's back to work Monday blues but when I get home I'll have new socks to slip into.

They look lovely, the yarn sounds amazing.

I believe they varnish violins with chitin. I didn't know it was antibacterial though.

Very cool socks! Congrats on getting them done!

Nice socks! I'd seen the Tofutsies but never anything made of it. Now I know it looks good!
