Things I bought

I went online shopping a little while ago, and everything came in the mail yesterday. This is what I bought:

Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock in the colours: Thraven, Lover's Leap, Manly yes but I like it too, Rosebud Grimm's Willow Wren.

All Socks that Rock Lightweight, except the one on the far right . Which is Socks that Rock Silky, and it's incredibly squishy and lush.

The dark grey is for a pair of socks for Leon. The rest is for pulling out when I feel sad, or when I want to plan a project, or when I just need some colour in my day.

Then I opened my second package, from Etsy seller One Fat Slug. This came wrapped in pink tissue paper. I was in love before I even saw the yarn.

2 skeins of 50 percent wool, 50 percent silk, dyed with walnuts. These are going to be knee high Lissajous. I think I'll knit them for socktober this year.

Also some cashmere sock wool. I haven't decided if I want cashmere socks or a cashmere shawl.

Then I went to a real bricks and mortar shop and bought shoes to show off my socks:

This is the first pair of shoes I have bought specifically for hand knit socks, which is all I wear these days.
Doc martens, my first pair for ten years!

I love the way they show off my hand knit socks. I love the way they feel, they are super comfortable. I love the way they are silent when I walk. I feel like ninja in sneaky silent comfortable shoes.


  1. New yarn, nom nom nom…

    Great shoes too, I have not resolved my shoe/sock problem yet.

  2. I think it's too funny we've now got the same shoes. They're SO comfortable, aren't they?
