The minute I saw the Socks that Rock colorway Ilanaaq go up on the website back in February, I knew I had to have it. It has actually gone “on vacation” already, so I’m glad I got it when I did!
The color was released at the beginning of the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver. Ilanaaq is a stone landmark that was built by humans at Whistler in Vancouver and it was the basis for the logo for the Vancouver Games. This colorway is based on the colors in that logo.
I like that this is a full-spectrum variegated yarn. Many more colors than the usual variety. And it’s kind of like Pride, but with purple and slightly less saturated colors.
Most likely, this will eventually become a pair of socks. Eventually. For now, I’m happy to just have it in my stash.
