I didn’t intend to start a new pair of socks this month. It just kind of… happened.
Honestly I don’t remember why. All I remember is that it was really important at the time that I cast on for another pair of socks.
This yarn has garnered a lot of attention and compliments from fellow knitters. The barber pole color thing makes a beautiful tweedy long color repeat, shifting through various shades of blue. And the fabric is remarkably thick and plush, with a nice soft fizz.
They ask what yarn it is, and I produce the ball from inside my knitting pouch with a dramatic flourish.
Patons Kroy Socks FX! (#0911 Cascade Colors.) On sale for $3 a ball at Joann’s! Can you believe it? I can hardly believe it, and I’m the one knitting with it. (I gotta buy more of this stuff! NO WAIT STOP MUST RESIST.)
