Last week, we got another bunch of String Theory Bluestocking in another bunch of gorgeous colors.
This weekend, I finally cast on for a pair of Bluestocking socks, anxious to get my hands on a kind of wool I'd never tried before: bluefaced leicester. I chose a pattern from Clara Parkes' Knitter's Book of Socks, called Hickory, with a barklike ribbing down the leg and instep. The whole leg was done in three evenings, which is how I know I love both the yarn and the pattern.
Come by the shop to take a closer look at the Knitter's Book of Socks, where there are 200+ pages of serious sock knitting inspiration, and to admire the String Theory Bluestocking. See you at the shop!
