October Sock Review: Lattes and Llamas.

This yarn is like my morning coffee, I can't live without it!!

Grab a cup of coffee and your needles, because we are in for a good sip and stitch adventure with this amazing yarn from Lattes and Llamas"Masquerade Yarn" is a 80% Blue Face Leicester and 20% Silk that makes any sock feel like you are having a party in every row. With 100g and 400 yards per skein this darling is the bell of the ball, well at least till the second sock is done.

Mt Doom - Bright / Red
Dorn - Bright / Orange
Pegleg Point - Bright / Lt Blue
Rivendale - Muted / Teal
Kasterborous - Muted / Blue
Jolly Roger - Muted / Purple

Our amazingly creative sock designer Kristen Hall, has given us quite a treat with her "Space Age Socks". I love the way the ribbing is broken up by the gusset, it almost looks like the rings on Saturn. Her choice of star stitch gather is so clever mimicking the stars in space. This is a sock where you can learn new techniques. Kristen has even included some helpful links to web tutorials and youtube videos that are extremely helpful for someone attempting these techniques for the the first time. Great Sock! Great Design! Can't wait to cast on. Just in time for fall, too.
