Plymouth Sockin' Sox

Isn't this a lovely colorway for sock yarn?

This is the gorgeous stuff I won from Romancing The Yarn, specifically from author Fran Baker who resides in my neighboring state to the south.

I'm excited about the opportunity to try this yarn as I've not had access to it at any of the local stores where I shop. I love the fact that it has a bit of bamboo in the content....I am almost certain this is what lends a very soft feel to the yarn. And I suspect it will wear well too.

The skein is a very generous 436 yards of blues & greys goodness, so I won't have to skimp on the leg/cuff either.

Thank you so much Fran and the wonderful ladies at Romancing the Yarn!

Happy Knitting!

Congrats on your win!! Beautiful yarn! I get to meet one of our bloggy buddies from the state to our south next week! Looking forward to meeting one of my virtual friends. Or as Maddy puts it, my imaginary friends.
