Red Heart Sock Yarn!
OMG!

I was at Hobby Lobby this week, and found some Red Heart sock yarn!

They only had one skein of each color, so there wasn't enough there to make a pair of socks. But I'm going to buy a couple skeins to try it out anyway. I guess I'll have to make different colored heels and toes.

I found it online too:

It was selling at Hobby Lobby for 5 dollars a skein.

You'd think they would know that you can only make one sock with a skein.

How did it feel? Was it soft?

It feels wonderful! It's 70% wool, 30% nylon, and it is treated with aloe.

I just sent an email message to Hobby Lobby, asking them to offer at least two skeins of each color, so that sock knitters will have enough to make a pair of socks.

I heard that the stores were just sent a skein in each color, and one each of the Lion sock yarn. No one ordered it, they were put in with regular orders. Maybe just to get it out there as samples so the people who order will know what to get next time.

I don't know what your colorways are, but I bought a "pair" of these socks. They come three to a pair and are all similar, but mismatched. They're super cute and interchangeable. Maybe you could do something like that with your skeins?

Those are cute, but not for me. I'm more of a boring, "classic" style girl.

I guess I could do that for my granddaughter, though.
