Sock it to me.

Again interrupting the beautiful daily Kansas posts, I have a little crafty to show. I am so excited about this one.

A few months ago, I participated in a Spin-a-long.  That is, I ordered some fiber dyed especially for a group of spinners and we all spun them up. When it was all over there was a drawing for a prize, and I won! A short while later I received this beautiful superwash merino braid from FatCatKnits, in the colorway “Wretched Kiss.”

 

I spun the yarn up intending it to go in the shop, but I miscalculated and ended up with a larger skein of 2ply and a shorter skein of navajo plied leftovers.

With colors this bright, I decided that I was going to have to knit myself some socks. It took me a little while (as I got distracted by other projects) but now, just in time for fall, I have some awesome socks.

    I’m loving your Kansas posts (used to live there, but of course you knew that).

    And I LOVE those socks. So gorgeous.
