My Bloomin' Feet sock pal was Alison from SimplySockYarn. She is not only an amazing sock knitter, she owns an online LYS that caters to only SOCK YARN. You heard me, you need it (sock yarn), she's got it! Something really funny, too... I bought my sock yarn from Alison to make my Bloomin' Feet socks for Esther. So, when my socks arrived (at my mom's, I guess I didn't change my address with everyone...whoops)- I was thinking "did I order more sock yarn?" Nope, my socks and a new coffee tin and some "Bees Knees" coffee arrived! The yarn is Fleece Artist Superwash Merino in "Rainforest". I *heart* all the greens in these socks. AND... yes, there is another AND... they are made for boots. It's very important that boot socks go up a tad bit farther than regular socks... especially here in New England. Those boot tops are cold! :) Alison, I love them!
Here is a close up of the stitch pattern... perhaps she'll share it with me? It's ultra stretchy and super yummy!
Last night, I stash dove. Yup, I have Parikha's blankie on the needles and a sweater for me. But, I needed a sock, y'know? Something that provides "instant gratification". Enter the Petal sock by Jeanne Townsend. In Lorna's Laces Supersock, "wisteria", Magic Loop method with size 0 needles.
This reminds me of tulips!
This is actually the colors:
This is a very simple 12 row pattern that looks WAY more complicated than it is. I'm hoping to have them done for Easter. :)
Have a great day!
