Hi, it’s Maria.
I love knitting socks. I tried it several years ago and hated it. I made 2 inches of one sock. About a year ago, I tried again and loved it. When I heard about the second season of The Rockin Sock Club, I immediately decided to join. I was going to totally follow the directions and use every yarn with it’s corresponding pattern. I did the Inside Out socks and didn’t have any problem.
I loved the cables. Actually, I love anything with cables.
As you can see, this combination worked well together. I finished these socks the day the third shipment came. I pulled out my new yarn and was thrilled. As Lexi will tell you, I love bright colors, and was Firebird ever bright. Again, I didn’t love the pattern.
So this time I chose the River Rapid socks from sockbug. She has some really neat free patterns.
The pooling on these socks was rather strange, hence the name “Tie Dye Socks”. I love the heel though.
Maybe by now, you’ve realized that I don’t follow the directions very well. But I have totally enjoyed The Rockin’ Sock Club. The yarns are fabulous, and if I don’t love the pattern, I’ll chose something else. You won’t hear any whining from me. Well, maybe just a little. I think the yarn will ship next week and we’ll be on vacation. I think it shows a total lack of respect to make such gorgeous yarn sit in a small town post office for a week!
maybe going to use the pattern this month!!!
Oh, and Monday is college move in day for Lexi. It’s going to be 105 degrees!!! I hope I’m not in my Wicked Witch of the West mode, or I may melt.
Hey Lexi, is your car really half full of yarn?
