Future Socks

My package from Simply Socks Yarn Company’s Christmas in July sale arrived today. Given that I had eight skeins in my shopping cart at one point, these two feel pretty restrained. Plus, they’re both going to give me stripey socks, which we know are my fastest knits.

The yarn on the left is West Yorkshire Spinners’ Signature 4 Ply. It’s 35% Bluefaced Leicester, 40% other wool, and 30% nylon, but, boy, does that BFL content make the yarn so soft and squishy! The yarn on the right is Urth Yarns’ Uneek Sock, which comes pre-wound in two adorable little matchy balls.

And then there’s my Smock Madness sock. I finally allowed myself to count the outer bars to compare it to sock #1. I just passed 20 of 24, which means I’m into my final repeat of the pattern! It’s totally possible I could finish tomorrow!
