IMA Proud Citizen of the SOCK NATION!
with liberty and HandPaints for all…

Even if you don’t have eyes in the back of your head, the Sock Nation is pretty hard to miss…

I am a Citizen! Your probably are too… :)

Maybe you’ve spent some time lusting (yes, that is the only word) after hanks and skeins and colors of YARN.

I have too! I have not only oogled fiber, I oogle everybody’s SOCKS (lady on the bus the other day, I apologize for eyeing those little cables)! I love all the KALs out there and really, love nothing better than visiting everyone’s WIP!

*****************KeepUptheGoodWorK*****************

I am going to do my best to do my part with you – I promise, Girl Scout’s Honor!

Above you see my Duty in action. I was two skeins up of some fine burgundy Twinkletoe yarn and put out the call for a swap. The lovely Karen B. brought the middle yarn to trade – it is STR color Alina (OMG – kiwi / tangerine / cobalt / turquoise / evergreen!). I met her at the SnB South Loop and enjoyed a night of knitting and fun with her buds…

The yarn on the bottom is OPAL! For some reason this yarn fits my sock bill exactly for knitting now – we’ve had such a mild winter that I crave thinner socks and dontcha know, Opal, makes a nice little pair.

This color was presented by the sparkling Carolyn, who in her infinite wisdom arrived at the Trade Lunch (dudes, I never swap on an empty stomach) with two skeins. She brought the one I asked for via email sight unseen (purple/black CROC) AND a wonderful early release of #9 GREEN. I blush when I say I was unable to extract myself from the tracktor beam the green exerted on me and I apologize to the burgundy for acting like it wasn’t even there!

and Last, but surely not really last because I LUST after sock yarn and it is actually at the top of the picture, is more STR, 50% Wool / 50% Tencel, color: Flourite. Now what right has Blue Moon to keep making such POWERFUL color combos that I cannot resist? I am mad to try this fiber mix as well – I love the Black Cutaway Cardi I made from a similar fiber mix a few months back –
