YPF: Sock Summit STR

Since WeirdyPants asked so nicely, I will first share my latest Socks that Rock acquisition. Purchases for me at Sock Summit by a woman with impeccable taste (Turtlegirl76).

It’s a rare gem, which means it was either a mistake or an experiment in Tina’s world of yarn dying at Blue Moon Fiber Arts

It’s STR Lightweight, which means it will almost certainly wind up as a pair of socks for yours truly

There are enough blues and greens in this skein that I’m pretty sure that’s why Cristi picked it for me (even though she likes to give me a hard time that I don’t branch out enough color-wise) but there are also enough browns an purples to make it interesting.

Whatever. It’s awesome. I love it. Thanks, Cristi!

For the longest time I thought "Rare Gems" was a color--not a concept. I couldn't figure out why it was so different every time!

Very pretty!

I figured the main theme of the color was "your" colors so you'd accept the fact that there were a few colors in there not in your usual range on the spectrum. ;) glad you like it!

I like the rare gems. I figure they're more unique. Those are beautiful colors
