These are the yarns for my upcoming socks in my self made sock club.
1 bag with Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn, and printed out directions to Skew. (hiding in the back)
1 bag with 2 balls of Red Heart Heart & Sole—tequela sunrise color way-- a bit orange, a bit coral (I have coral!) a bunch of other sunny, intense colors! (also in the back of image)
1 bag with 2 balls of Kroy Jacquard in Tangerine color way—a pastel orange with hints of pink—not quite coral, but a redish orange all the same. The pastels seem very summery. I have several sock that are autumnal—a few spring color ways are also needed.
1 bag with 2 balls of Kroy Fx—Clover color way—I see it as mostly green in the skein; but, having seen it knit up, it is quite colorful —and not very green at all--but green enough! I have lots of green in my wardrobe!--plus my forest green socks persist in hiding (maybe I've lost them?)
At this moment, the Kroy Jacquard in Tangerine is leading the pack. I have a lot of coral in my wardrobe—and right now, not a single pair of socks with coral. Since my goal it to have socks that match clothes, knitting up this yarn next is no brainer. (D'oh!) And is a self patterning yarn, so I can just make a generic sock and let the yarn do the heavy work. (Tangerine is on page 4/link above)
Close behind the bagged collection--the Roy G Biv socks. The yarns are assembled –(in a zip lock bag), but not yet divided. The background color still hasn't been finalized, though dark grey is in the lead. I think black won't offer enough contrast to the indigo or purple; while white will wash out the colors, and taupe (light taupe (aka oatmeal) and dark taupe (flax) have other (planned!) uses. Whether the colors will be knit as simple stripes or chevrons, or some sort of pattern –well there is time enough to make that decision.
Crazy Eight socks are continuing to ferment--but almost don't count—since they will be knit from scraps, not stash. The zesty orange peko (bo) socks (5+ years old and never yet worn!) are very pretty. I really like the stitch pattern and effect--even if the sock themselves don't match anything.
I really need to use up some of this yarn (and fast!) since these weekend is shaping up to be one with a potential for SIN (stash increases!)
The worst of it is, I worked extra hours last week, and even with putting a bit aside for a rainy day, I have dollars that are crying out to become sock yarn. MONEY and SALES! A deadly combination if there ever was one! If I am really lucky, I will win one of the raffles at the Socktacular and have a free ball of yarn to work with—but I am not counting on it.
My current socks (on needles) are Kroy Stripes (mullberry color way) in my Cross Purposes pattern. They are chugging along. I started them late on the 15th—and they showing evidence of being finished by the 22nd.
