I got a tweet on my phone from Twisted the other day. It said, “BLUE MOON IS HERE!! Mucho Socks that Rock is right now being put on the shelves!”
I was at work, and had errands to run after work. But somehow I made it. There were 20 colors of Socks that Rock Mediumweight, the skinniest yarn I’m willing to knit with. I wanted one colorway to join the second quarter STR KAL on Ravelry, but I had a hard time deciding.
This color is called Bleeding Hearts. It looks like the dicentra spectabilis that grows in my garden. The stems are just peeking up through the soil now, and they’re the color on the dark end of the skein. The flowers will be a glorious pink when it’s time. This colorway is well suited suited to the pattern, Shur’tagal. It seems to want to be somewhat monochrome.
But the Alley-Oop was so pretty, how could I leave it there? It has many of my favorite colors in it, as well as a green that adds just enough zing. Yes, I bought it.
Somehow I made it out the door without Tidepooling…
