Sock it to me

This last little while, I’ve really needed some mindless knitting, so I (temporarily!) set aside the lace shawl to give that poor neglected Static sock some love.

And I managed to get the first one finished! The Static yarn (from Knit Picks) is just as nice to knit with as their Felici and Stroll (I suspect it’s the same base). And as you can see, it’s dyed, more or less in stripes, but in a crazy, wild mottled pattern. It makes a nice looking sock. This colourway is Seaside.

I have a couple other skeins of it in the stash (Beekeeper and Peppercorn). It looks like Knit Picks is doing the same thing with the Static as they do with the Felici – releasing a pile of colourways each year, and discontinuing the others. The colours up on the site now are all inspired by old… sorry…. retro TV shows.

I’d like to buy some more, but the yarn closet is overflowing, and I don’t knit as much as I used to. I’ll just have to be content with the skeins I do have.

  1. This one turned out very nice. I enjoy knitting with Static and it tends to wear well. I’ve seen the peppercorn knit up somewhere (was it Araignee’s blog?) and I really like that colorway as well.

    I like Static too but it’s a bear for us obsessive compulsive matchy-matchy types. I working on Peppercorn right now and it’s the one I goofed up casting on because I was too obsessed with getting the colors to match.
    Good luck with that ice storm. We spent 5 days trapped in a basement with no electricity once upon a time-3 kids, 2 dogs, 2 cats and a parrot while the world crashed down around us. What fun. All I have to hear is the word ice in a forecast and I go into panic mode.
