Blue Moon Fiber Arts rocks...

Not just their socks, you know :)

Remember when I said that Blue Moon Fiber Arts was going to make up for the knots I found in my Socks That Rock Carbon skein (from the Baby Cable Rib socks)?

Oh boy did they.



and because everyone wants a behind the scene shot:



Socks That Rock, Mediumweight
from Blue Moon Fiber Arts
380 yds, 5.5oz
gauge: 8 sts=1" on size 2-3 needles
colorway: Tigers Eye

Yowsa. I love orange (to the point I stalk blogs and offer swaps of non-orange tinted yarn for those with that hue!)... and have admired this colorway for forever. Its not as deep orange as I've seen, but its orange!! :) And I'm in love with the greyish/mauvish color in there too, it was in the carbon skein and I think its very nice as well.

Yay! :)

Did they make up for it by sending you that skein as a gift?

A very pretty colorway, indeed. I'm handering to try their yarn...soon I will.

I've been eyeing that colorway for a while and can't wait to see it knitted up! I'm glad they made good on the knotty skein.

PS - I also hunt high and low for orange - I love it and think there isn't enough out there!
