Ok, the Sock Summit is over. I’m happy to say I’ve been able to make peace with it all. But not without a little help from a friend. When Sarah said I’ll send you a little something, I was thinking tape measure, stitch markers, something along those lines. She was thinking bigger.
As she said in her note she looked for the earthiest skein she could find in the marketplace (wishing I was there to search with her). I’d say she found it. It’s so beautiful and of course this picture is not doing it justice. There is alot of subtle color variation going it.
It’s BFL sock yarn (which I’ve been dying to try. My stash is pretty much all merino) by Girl On The Rocks in the Bark colorway. Yummy!!!
I’m going to save it for a pair of socks or stockings using some of the patterns from this book.
Another little something I bought for myself to ease the pain. It’s hot off the press from Schoolhouse Press. We’ll talk more about that when it arrives, I’m so excited. Between the book and the yarn I may be inspired me to stick my toes in the sock design pool.
Thank you Sarah.
