|Ta-dah! A complete pair of socks!|
This yarn is from Blue Moon Fiber Arts and is called Supercolourfragilistic. I really like this yarn. It great to knit with and the colors are so vivid. I've made several pairs using Blue Moon yarn. I love their color combinations and the creative names they give to their yarns. I was hoping for less striping and more pooling, but you get what you get.
However, on the pooling yarn scene I do have this sock...

which is looking good, if I say so myself, and I do! This is Opal's Antonia Hand Dyes that I showed on Tuesday. I got mine from Simply Socks Yarn Company several months ago. It was on sale, but I don't see anymore on their site. However, I did find some colorways here on Webs.

This is going quickly. I'm doing 62 stitches on 2.75 mm needles. I love the colors in this skein. There are a couple of shades of turquoise. purple and a taupe-y chartreuse-y gold. Very interesting. I hope the pooling continues after I turn the heel and start the foot. My experience has been that sometimes the skein starts out very promising but then it reverts to just striping. Which is nice, but pooling is waaaaaay better!!
I had planned to work on a Spring-y shawl until Judy at Patchwork Times issued her pooling sock yarn challenge. Oh well, the weather here in Ohio is still more Winter than Spring. The forecast is for accumulating snow on Sunday into Monday which means more wool sock wearing days in my future.
Happy stitching and knitting -
