Since I finished up the last pair of socks I blogged about, I completely knit up another pair of socks, as well as finishing up a pair of socks I had in the works for a while.
The pair I had been working on for a while and was kind of in the background, were knit up out of KnitPicks Stroll yarn in Tie-dye Speckle. This is the second pair of this particular colorway I have made.
This pair of socks, was the pair I completely knit up since I finished up the Halloween socks. The yarn I knit up, was the yarn I had ordered from Long Dog Yarns, it is their Bounce Sock Yarn bass in the April 2019 colorway.
This was an interesting yarn to work with since it is lighter weight and is 25% Nylon rather than 100% Wool. The Nylon made it more slippery than the wool, so it was a bit harder to work with.
Once I finished up the second pair of socks, I cast on the yarn I had ordered from Forbidden Fiber Co, I had selected the Fortitude yarn base and picked the Fraser’s Ridge colorway.
I still have one hank of yarn that I am waiting on to arrive, that I ordered from bumblebee acres fiber farm. I ordered it two and a half weeks ago, and won’t likely see it for at least another couple weeks since they are backed up with being at festivals. I get it in one sense, but if you are that busy, why hire more staff to keep up with the demand of being at festivals and your online orders. It makes someone like me not want to order from them again. So I am hoping I really like the yarn when it shows up, to make up for the wait.
Even though today was not the warmest, it was in the upper 60’s, I washed up the two pairs of socks I just finished. As of writing this post, they are still out on the line.
