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.
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.
I am sure you all know about STEP, it has jojoba and aloe worked into the fiber and makes lofty and lovely socks.
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. It is so pretty that I could not put our name across the skein. Any ideas?
