Yarntopia Socks

Pattern: Elongated Corded Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks

Yarn: Fleece Artist merino sock yarn in our custom Yarntopia colorway

Modifications: I did a short row heel and a traditional toe.

Comments: I have a love/hate relationship with socks. I start out like gang busters, and then quickly tire of them. I had to force myself to finish these babies, but I'm glad I did. The Fleece Artist sock yarn is the best that I've worked with.

Wow! Look at those colors!

I feel you on the socks. I'm almost through my second sock and it's like pulling teeth on every round. Oh well, such is knitting ;)

Those are gorgeous!! I liked the colors when I first saw them in the shawl Monkee knit for you, but in the nice dense sock fabric they look even better. :)

Woo hoo you finished! I love your socks. I sometimes have a hard time finishing the second sock as well. I love all my new Yarntopia purchases by the way and have completed 2 things already!

I really, really love these socks, and the colorline is just amazing! I'm totally sock-knitting-addicted, but I feel like you: I start with the ultimate speed, but then I tire quickly. I found out that it's not a long tiredness though, it's like that sleepiness one has in the late mornings/early afternoons - if you keep your eyes open and try to get going, the sleepiness usually leaves pretty soon - and it's like that with that sock tiredness: gritting your teeth and experiencing a few minutes of uneasiness, and then it's back to the old sock-knitting-love. Perhaps you're experiencing the same?

Love love love the colorway! You guys picked a great color scheme.

I've decided that my new life goal is to have a colorway named after me (or my blog -- either would do). Seems like all I have to do is open my own yarn store -- piece of cake!
