Wednesday

sock wool arrived!

Since entering the 2008 sock Pentathlon I've been searching and searching for solid colour sock wool. I looked locally but all I found was stripes!
Online shopping it was then. I wish that more online shops would have a section just on sock wool or state what could be used as sock wool.
I found what I was looking for at Tapestry Craft, some very yummy 'araucania, Ranco solid'.
And I had to buy two because, well they just looked too good to leave behind.
Not as solid as I thought it was going to be I guess its because the way its been dyed.
The colour is absolutely vibrant and I believe it smells like candied orange peel.

Burnt orange

green

Green must be my favorite colour I just haven't admitted to it yet but boy do I buy a lot of it and when I look around my home green seems to be pretty dominant.Now all I have to do is wait for the 1st of March for the sock pattern and then pick which one to knit up.
