The Sock Craze Continues!

Monday is becoming my favorite day of the week, since I get to post customer projects. It's such fun and so satisfying to see the wonderful things all of you are making with Fearless Fibers Yarn!

Today I have two pair of socks to share with you. The first were made by Elisa using Fearless Fibers Merino Wool Sock Yarn in Peppermint Pink. These are particularly interesting because they are crocheted rather than knit. I'd never seen crocheted socks before. Soooo cute and such a different twist on the handmade sock theme. I've had several other customers in the past couple of weeks mention that they are making crocheted socks. Perhaps a trend in the air?

The next pair to share with you today were made by Karen using Fearless Fibers Superwash Merino Yarn in the Abundance colorway. This is the heavier weight superwash yarn that borders between a sock and sportweight. I don't classify this yarn as a "sock yarn" in my listing titles and categories, as I don't want to mislead anyone into thinking it's lighter weight than it really is, but the fact is that most customers do in fact use it to make socks. It makes a nice, heavier weight sock for the winter, such as these wonderful socks that Karen made. Great job, Karen!

The "Abundance" colorway is one I haven't made in a while, but these are so cute that perhaps I'll have to whip up another batch here in the near future.

A big THANK YOU to Elisa and Karen for sharing their work! I have two new projects lined up for showcasing next week and let me tell ... they are both AMAZING! I can hardly stop myself from just posting them right now, but then I might find myself without anything new for next week, so I guess I'll just have to be patient ... and so will you. But believe me, the wait will be worth it.

Now stop cruising the web and get back to your knitting or crocheting!

Wow! Crocheted socks! Who'd have thought? I love the abundance colorway - BTH, my hubby loves his socks made from the superwash merino.
