I've been on a sock yarn binge lately. So I've decided to share a couple of my new skeins. This first skein in Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Potluck. The color is Red Hot and Green. I love the combination of red and lime green. There aren't too many things that I would wear with that color combination - but I figured a pair of socks would be great. I've not used this yarn before, but it seems nice and soft. I'm looking forward to knitting it. Add another project to the list!
I haven't picked a pattern yet. When I ordered the yarn (it was part of a larger order from Little Knits) I got a couple free patterns. They appear to be simple and would probably work well with this variegated yarn.
Red seems to be a very hard color for me to photograph and get a close representation of the real color. It didn't help that I didn't start taking pictures until last night after work. The natural light was declining and I only had a limited amount of time to get a good picture. I'll have to start earlier to get the shots for next week.
The second skein I shot was my new Rocking' Sock Club installment called Titania. This is my fourth shipment and so far it is my favorite. I love the darker rich colors for fall. I was able to get almost all the colors in the skein in this picture. There is a little more purple between the blues than actually shows up here. You can see a little of it peaking through at the edge of the lighter periwinkle/blue color
I was able to get almost all the colors in the skein in this picture. There is a little more purple between the blues than actually shows up here. This skein came with two great patterns - so it will be hard to choose which to do first. The first pattern is called Titania's Revenge by Cookie A. Check out the pictures on her blog. I love this pattern, but it looks a little more intricate than anything I've done before. The leg of the pattern features a lace pattern and the foot has a faux cable. I'll definitely be giving this one a try. The other pattern is called Central Air by Tanya Bachman. It's a great pattern with lace ribbing. I know I have some yarn in my stash that will be great with the pattern. Check back next Friday for more fiber goodness!
