Make that 48 pairs.Summer of Socks 2008
Remember how I had yarn for 47 pairs of socks? Well, make that 48:
I've been wanting sock blockers for quite some time, and I decided that the Summer of Socks was the time to go ahead and get some. I thought about a bunch of different options, but eventually went with these Blue Moon Fiber Arts pretty carved ones. I love them! I will admit that I got them mainly to help me take nice pictures of socks, because I don't think it's all that necessary to block socks when you wear them, at least most of the time. But since I am planning to finish lots and lots of socks this summer (I hope!), they seemed like a good investment.
While I was ordering from Blue Moon, I obviously couldn't not order some Socks that Rock. This is my first Socks that Rock ever! I dithered for a long time - days - on what color to order, and I ended up with Chapman Springs. I'm glad I did, because as soon as I saw this colorway in person, I fell in love with it. It reminds me of summers in high school and a certain lake where we used to go to swim and Peter Gabriel and October Project and broomstick skirts and so many memories. I can't wait to start knitting with it on June 21.Posted by Kat at May 29, 2008 02:16 PM
