That’s me doing my best Murray Walker impression! If you don’t know who Murray Walker is (former F1 commentator extraordinaire), I suggest you listen to the first 15 seconds of this clip – although all of it is worth listening to, particularly if you follow F1 these days!
Anyway. Getting back on track!
What we are a-go with is the Solid Sock Club! The first pattern came out yesterday, coinciding beautifully with the landing of yarn on doormats. I mentioned before that I had picked my colours in advance and was going to have them all sent to me at once so I could mix and match per pattern.
And here are my choices:
Got some proper bright ones in there!
We have Blue Blood Red:
Vinca Minor is actually a lot more purple than it looks in the picture – a really lovely colour! The green and yellow are REAL departures for me. I’ve decided to try and be more bold with my sock yarn choices – when the yarn is destined for socks. If it’s going to become anything else I’ll have to be mindful of the sort of shades I can wear near my face, but for socks, anything goes!
I cast on my first sock last night – the pattern is Carlottina by Rachel Coopey and I’m using Vinca Minor.
Determined not to fall two years behind with this club! I’m sure I can knuckle down for four months and be disciplined 🙂
