Fortissima Has a New Sock Line & We Like It!

Nice header right?  I kept thinking why right ‘Another New Sock Line?’  Say what you mean, so I did. :)

Fortissima Country Colors does the self-patterning thing just right, with beautiful colors and patterns that are not too random or too symmetrical.

Fortissima Country Colors  

When I look at these colors #16 calls me the first, it says ’knit me and then wear me ASAP’ and I am usually a red girl.  I am already knitting my older son a pair of socks with color #10, which he calls ‘tiger.’

Country Colors comes in 100 gram skeins so one skein is enough for a pair of socks.  It is machine washable and has a soft hand.  I think Opal’s Rainforest has some serious competition.

While I am here I might as well make a quick note to let you know that Austermann STEP came out with new colors and a set of Jacquard patterns, which it did not have before. 

New Austermann STEP Jacquard Colors 

I am sure you all know about STEP, it has jojoba and aloe worked into the fiber and makes lofty and lovely socks.

I am going back to my forever-lace project, this is the 5th time I have knitted the same pattern from Knit One, Crochet Too. A Knit One Crochet Too Project

I also have to figure out what to knit with approx. 600-675 yards of light DK weight yarn that was hand painted lovingly by Pat of Fly designs.  Here is a photo.  Personal Stash - Can you say BFL It is so pretty that I could not put our name across the skein.  Any ideas?
