oh, the joy! the rapture!
sock rockin'; rockin' socks; socks that rock - it all feels very Dr Seuss!
A very generous friend (and wicked enabler!) gave me a gift certificate to Blue Moon Fiber Arts for Christmas, and my haul arrived today!
I decided to make the most of the shipping and nabbed an extra skein at the same time...
Please allow me to introduce my latest additions -
Socks that Rock lightweight, in "Valkyrie" (from the Raven series); "Hard Rock" and "Rooster Rock" - yum!
The Raven Clan series is the one I'm particularly interested in at the moment. From an artist's point of view, I really liked the notion of adding colour to black... I am currently working on a sock pattern, in homage to Saint Nick, and this colourway will be perfect!
Hard Rock I couldn't resist, I mean - it's hot pink and black! People, it doesn't get any better than that!
Rooster Rock is the most gorgeous blend, with tan, lilac, violet, a little khaki and cherry, and to top it off, Foghorn Leghorn orange - divine!
Can't wait to get these beautys cast on!
