sockapalooza socks

My sockapalooza socks are here! These came from blogless Carrie Anne.

They are lovely and soft and fit just right. The yarn is Mountain Colors Bearfoot, which Carrie Anne correctly guessed that I would like, though I had not yet knit with it. Apparently, Carrie Anne is persistent -- she said that she tried a few different patterns before deciding that the colors would look best in a stockinette sock.

The colors are fabulous, and exactly what I would have picked for myself! I can see myself wearing these often this winter, especially when curled up indoors and studying on a chilly weekend afternoon.

But the most fitting part? The name of the colorway.

  • You don't have to be a crazy woman to appreciate that colorway. It's beautiful! I wonder what the story behind it is. There must be one...
