beautiful and soft
The yarn I received in this colorway was more purple than blue which was perfect for my 10 yo son. He's a big Hobbit fan, so when I found the "Socks for the Shire" pattern on Ravelry I knew they would be great for him. He said they are the softest socks I have ever made him; he loves the color & that it's striping so the "hills" in the pattern are more pronounced. Keep up the awesome ideas & work!
I couldn't wait to get started on making socks with this yarn! They came out beautifully. The only "problem" I had was when I was knitting the dark blue parts; it was hard to count rows so I would know how many rows I still had to go. It was worth it because they came out great!
I am halfway through a pair of socks with this yarn. The colors are. I rant and the yarn is soft and squishy. I love it!
Exciting color way
