Socks That Rock Yarn Porn: Raven Series

 

Socks That Rock Lightweight: Raven Series

Colorway: Grawk (top picture) and Thraven (bottom picture)

I swapped my copy of Poems of Color for these skeins of STR. I was actually very pleased with the way that the colors showed up in the pictures. The Raven series is notoriously difficult to photograph. If you’ve been wondering how these two colors look, than here they are!

 I don’t have a paticular project in mind for either of these yarns, but I’ve wound up Grawk (my favorite color) and I’m thinking of…oh, maybe a lacy beret, or something similar. I like the firm twist I’m feeling; I like a good bouncy yarn. I’m finding the idea of actually knitting with these beautiful yarns as bordering on sacrilige.

 If someone has a suggestion for a pattern, I would love to hear it. Anything dark, moody, and maybe with a touch of fall or winter would be good. If I knit it now (in summer) hopefully I will have it ready for when the weather cools off.

 You know. Hopefully.

    that surely is begging to be a multishaded shrug, similar to what Kate did here: http://needled.wordpress.com/2008/06/24/monkey-shrug/
