This gorgeous knit sock pattern entitled Revival ($3.85) by Glenna C. was the included pattern.  This card had a coupon code to download the pattern on Ravelry.  (I blurred it out.  Sorry.)  The pattern is very thorough.  It includes charts, a list of required skills and even a glossary of terms.

This is a picture from the pattern site.  Aren’t they beautiful?  So, I decided years ago that I can crochet pretty well and therefore I was going to concentrate on crochet and forgo knitting.  (Be a master of one trade, ya know?)  But, this pattern has me seriously rethinking that decision.  Look at those pretty cables!

Oh my goodness.  Here it is!!  The beautiful, gorgeous yummy yarn!!  It is Mellow Yellow colorway Super Sock by Twisted Owl Fiber Studio ($20).  You might have received a different colorway in your box, but don’t be jealous that I got this luscious yellow and you didn’t.  You can order more colors to supplement the skein in your box for $20 each on Etsy.  (A little less with the coupon code included in the box.)

The yarn is machine washable, which is great when you are making socks.  It is a 75% Merino Wool / 25% Nylon blend.  Each hank is hand dyed so make sure you order enough to finish your project.  (If you are ordering more.)

Look at that beautiful color!  I love the slight hints of orange.  I did find a crochet sock pattern to assuage my need for cables.  Check it out below.

A note from a yarn aficionado without a ball winder.  Carefully wind the hank onto a ball.  I was most successful with putting a chair upside down and placing the hank around two of the legs in order to keep it from getting tangled while I wound it into the ball.  Or you could get someone to hold it for you.  But, whatever you do, don’t try to work from it in the hank.  It will not end well.

This Lavender face and body soap by Anitako ($8) was the bonus gift in this month’s box.  This is a small business made, natural soap.  It smelled so very good!!  My daughter with sensitive hands pounced upon it and claimed it for her own.  img_20160917_2151502_rewind

So, here are the crochet socks that I made.  This is a paid pattern called Parker Cable Socks by Lakeside Loops.

Check-out my cables!

Didn’t they turn out lovely?  I may make them a little higher.  I haven’t decided for sure.

I am impressed with the beautiful yarn offered by Sock Crush by Yarn Crush.  I love trying out the lovely high end yarns.  They have exceptional taste in fiber. The title, Yarn Crush, is so appropriate!  Forget diamonds, send me yarn!
