Sloth

From time to time someone will ask why on earth I named one of the colors in my line "Sloth." Such an unattractive name for such a pretty color! Those of you who have been around a while know that the color was part of the FF Seven Deadly Sins Sock Club all the way back in 2007. Light blue is the symbolic color for laziness.



These socks were knit by Vickie in FF Lightweight Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in Sloth. I love the way the photo shows the socks enjoying a moment of quiet lounging and reflection. Perhaps not sloth or laziness, but certainly they are enjoying a bit of relaxation and the pure joy of doing nothing but enjoying a beautiful day.



The pattern Vickie used for these beauties is Stansfield 196 by Charlene Schurch. You can see more of Vickie's lovely work on Ravelry where she is VickieK.

Great Monday to all!

VickieK's socks in FF Sloth sare fabulous! It's interesting, that light blue is considered to be the color of sloth. I would have thought that light blue would represent the Virgin Mary, although I suppose that Mary is always shown in darker blue robes in traditional paintings.

Thanks Lynne! You always make me feel so good about my work. We have a morning-after a stormy night sky here in PA this morning. It is the exact color of the sloth yarn with bits of pink and gray.
