Oh Socks That Rock

How do I love thee? I really think that this colorway is my most favorite yarn ever. Click to see it bigger. I mean, how can you go wrong with pinks, blacks, greys & fuchsia? Hard Rock. To. Die. For. Is this not the prettiest yarn?

Since the lighting completely blows where we knit, most of us are casting on before tonight because the Abq girls are starting our own Jaywalker KAL. It should be a blast. I'll remember to bring my camera to document the momentous occasion.

Now that I have my ribbing done I'll be a good girl and go back the the criss-cross scarf for the girl. Carole already threatened me not to knit more than the ribbing since I yelled at her not to either.

I'm so in love with this yarn. I really need to go and buy some other colors. I think I'll make my T. a pair after mine.


  • Oooh, I have the same colorway. Can't wait to see how yours knits up!

  • Apparently everyone has that yarn but me. I'm doing Jaywalkers in Trekking XXL until my tax return comes in, and then, oh yes, then, I will get Socks That Rock.

    Did you order from The Fold?

  • You're using the bigger put up - the 360 yds? Who said you won't have enough yarn? You wear size 9.5? What I'd do is make the same socks I make, only with the 360 yardage. 12 rows ribbing, 25 repeats, split for heel flap, 15 rows on the heel flap, turn heel, continue on foot until you need to decrease for the toe. Usually gives me a 6" cuff. That's what I do with 325 yds. I end up with 57 pattern repeats before I decrease for the toe. I wear a size 8. The thing to remember is that the pattern repeats take a lot of yarn, so if you have to cut somewhere, cut there, not on the ribbing.

    Have fun! ;-)
