Burning Rings of Fire

To celebrate the purchase of more Crown Mountain Farms Sock Hop yarn-
I have been knitting these.

Nice knit, for the mindless TV hours. The colors keep you mesmerized, and its a lovely hand spun yarn, but I am noticing that one skein is spun thinner. The skeins were different. I got 2 skeins, one was 60g and one was 78g. I have no way to measure yardage, which might be the same. So far they are both keeping up beautifully. Can't wait to finish them and wear them. This is very special yarn. I hope they'll be ready for next week's Bobmas Eve party (April 10th). There will be celebratory gatherings in many cities. The New York City Ravelry Meetup will be at The Seamen’s Church Instiute,

I didn't know about the Bobmas Eve party, thanks for the heads up.

The socks look great in Sock Hop!

Those socks are gorgeous! I love that colorway.
And the hat is lovely, too. What a beautiful texture.

Love those socks! I never would have though that pattern for that yarn. Thanks for a wonderful idea to steal for some of my own Sock Hop stash. :D

Those look like entertaining socks. Think I'd better go look up the pattern....
(As if I didn't have enough socks on the go already!)
