Turkey Tracks: John’s Socks

John’s Socks

Earlier in the spring, I visited Halcyon Yarns in Bath, Maine.  Halcyon Yarn is famous in Maine.  I can’t imagine why I haven’t ever visited since I go by Bath not infrequently.  Here’s the web site:  http://halcyonyarn.com/.

I bought a ball of yarn I fell in love with.  Zauberball yarn:  http://halcyonyarn.com/products/yarn/06716600.html.  I saw socks, not shawls.  Ok, the truth.  I bought 2 balls.  One I fell in love with, and one I knew would make a pair of socks that would go with a winter sweater and pair of corduroy pants I have.  I don’t really have socks that work well with this combo.

Of course I started with the ball I loved.  As I worked, John thought he loved the developing socks too.

 In retrospect, this beautiful yarn–lovely to work with–would have taken a pattern with no trouble–without taking away from the changing pattern in the yarn itself.

  1. Beautiful legs, largely due to the glorious socks.

  2. I love these socks! Can you believe I’ve lived in Maine for 25+ years and I’ve never been to Halycon?! Maybe I should go because I really like this yarn too! 🙂

    • You could order the balls on-line. They are very generous. I had enough leftovers so that I could have made each sock cuff a bit longer. The foot is about 12 inches long. Louisa
