Charlene gave me wonderful sock yarn for my birthday!


Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock CUSTOM PurlSoho colorway in what I think is Sage

So.Totally.Awesome. I think it is Sage. The tag says Ons/22ms. It smells great with a slight hint of acrid setting agent amongst the bouquet of wool. Believe it or not, this is the first Lorna's Laces that has made it into my stash! I'm thinking of Cookie's Pomatomus sock pattern if the striping looks good or a feather and fan pattern.

(Yes, I did/do really want sock yarn for my birthday). Thank you Charlene! It is soooooo me. Thanks for thinking of me when you went into PurlSoho, too.

Wendy graciously sent me some wonderful sock yarn from her de-stashing. I did the happy yarn dance when I opened the package and will re-enact it for you once I get caught up with my Japan Photos.




The pomatomus socks are beautiful. I might make them too.
The color areas on the Lorna's Laces are large. Do they knit up in big chunks?

OH! I'm glad you liked the yarn! I got a skein of a redish color for my own, to make maybe something lacy, or mittenettes. . .Something small. Just so you know, it's self striping and looks great with simple patterns, if you're thinking what to do with it!
