Wake Up Socks..............


Put these socks on in the morning and they're sure to wake you up!   Actually, they're much brighter than the photo shows.  Bet you can't guess the color name.  It's a bit obvious - "lime!"  The yarn is Yukon from Pagewood Farm which is a merino wool, bamboo and nylon blend.  We do offer several colors of this yarn in our Etsy shop if you're thinking about knitting some socks.  It's a wonderful fiber to work with and I'm sure you'd enjoy it.



I've had several questions on the book about bread baking. It's called "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day" by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois.  How great to make a large batch, keep it in the frig and just pull out a grapefruit size wad when you need it.  

It's funny, I've always equated knitting socks to baking bread.  Both give that huge "wow" feeling when they're all done.  I can remember telling my yarn shop customers that over and over again.  Guess that's why those two activities are my favorite.

Hope you all have a wonderful day................

Love that color! But I'm worried that bamboo in the yarn with make the socks sag. Have you worn this yarn?
