Sock Futures Rock!

After hearing about all the banking angst Blue Moon Fiber Arts went through, I decided to do a little shopping there, especially since I have never knit socks with Socks that Rock yarn. Shocking, I know. I was delighted to find a color scheme that reminded me of my new blueberry tea-for-one.

Socks that Rock in Nodding Violet and Henpecked.

The Nodding Violet doesn’t have any white, but I think the blue-violets and greens are a great match. Yay! The Henpecked results from blog envy. I saw Kristi’s marvelous wool/silk fiber from BMFA in Henpecked, and I had to have the color. Now I do. The only question is which one to knit first. I think I may reward myself by knitting a pair of these socks right away to help drive away sock ennui. I think these yarns deserve a whole skein shot.

In further knitting news, the Landscape Shawl is now over 50% complete! To celebrate here is a close up of the moss stitch chevron.

In 24 more rows I get to start the final chevron in reversed stockinette. I know I have complained a lot about how boring this shawl is to knit, but the CTH yarn is really working out nicely. Alison left me such a nice comment about the LS that I felt very encouraged to continue. She is knitting up an amazing Hidcote. You should go check it out.

Happy Knitting!

  • I have a whole basket of future socks too! But I’ve no Socks that Rock either…

    Love the Nodding Violet colourway especially.

  • Lovely colors for your Landscape. You’ll be done before you know it. Thank you for including a comment about my Hidcote. I finally finished it! I highly recommend it as a project:)

    I also have never used STR, but I eventually will break down and get some. The colors you chose are gorgeous.

    Have a nice weekend!

  • Absolutely gorgeous. I have only been fortunate enough to make myself socks from cheap worsted weight (courtesy of Wal-mart), so I always drool over pictures of beautiful sock yarn. Yours looks lovely and completely drool-worthy!

  • Sorry, but I can’t seem to get the “Blue Moon Fiber Arts” website figured out, for some reason. Did you actually order your yarn from that site? I only saw two different skein colors of yarn listed, and neither looked like yours.

    Any help would be much appreciated!
