Yes, I know I said socks weren’t my thing, but when I saw this amazing Fyberspates in Purl City YarnsI couldn’t resist.

The photo doesn’t do this gorgeous merino blend justice, with 5% Stellina it brings out my  magpie love of sparkly things!

And, I’ve found just the pattern. So, go on sock knitters rub your hands in glee – a second pair on the needles !!

    yep…its the sock wool that gets me everytime! And there are LOTS of great patterns…it doesn’t have to be boring stocking stitch!!! Have fun!


  2. Lovely Yarn, I have made a shawl out of this for my sister, she loved it! and the sock pattern is delightful, as are all Alana’s patterns.
