new sock yarn from knitpicks
Hey everybody, I was just over at KnittersReview (ya'll all know that I am a biforumual) and KnitPicks has an ad that is just going up for this new sock line that is called 'Mystique.' The yarn is not yet on the KP site, I suppose they are doing that now, but from what I could tell from the add...beautiful colors!! Oh yeah, 100% merino. I'm so EXCITED. Except that I just ordered 28 balls of sock yarn (some from each line of their sock yarn, except 'color your own' of which I have & was out of stock) from them a few days ago and I can't afford to buy this new yarn now, today. :rollseyes: Obviously, I'm not going to knit 14 pairs of socks (plus the yarn I have for socks here) before I get a chance to buy this other yarn...I just really sock yarn.
Wanted ya'll to know it's coming out...24 fantastic new colors

Last time they were about to release new yarns, there was some "backdoor" kind of way to take a look at it...I cant find it now! :(

okay, on the site; there are 2 additional sock yarns: Essential: 75% superwash wool 25% nylon and these are solid colors.... about time, it's hard to find solid colors; next: Parade: same make-up & these are stripes; which, of course, coordinate with the solids
Mix & match heels & toes, etc....but...I am wanting to do the mix & match solids in one sock; u know toe blue; foot; green; heel; orange; leg; purple (colors are just used as ex., I don't remember the colors) and then do the opposite sock in the same colors; but in different areas of the socks!!
