The call of the socks

While waiting for supplies for my next projects to arrive in the mail (yarn for one, needles for another) I succumbed to the call of the socks once again. This Trekking yarn--color #126--has been whispering to me from the stash basket (choose me!), so it was the winner.

It's possible that the pink and brown combo is *last year* but I don't care. I noticed this particular colorway popping up on more than one blog in recent months, so I must not be the only one loving the colors. I'm calling these the Brach's socks since they'll end up looking a lot like these candies. Good thing I'm not much of a coconut lover or I'd find myself munching more than knitting!

The colors are great! Who cares if they are last year's trend!

I've been admiring versions of the Brach's socks for months and finally was able to track down that colorway on a recent trip. I think it's been discontinued but is still quite in demand!
What pattern are you using?

Jane said...

That is one of the best colorways of Trekking I've seen. Not "last year," but a classic.

As soon as I saw the picture I was like OH I LOVE THEM. What colorway is it? I'll have to try to find it somewhere.

On my monitor, they remind me more of Good'n'Plenty. Pink and white and the black licorice inside. Mmmmm.

I never pay attention to what's this year or last year. If I like it, I go with it, no matter how in or how out.

Enjoy your socks. Just don't eat them!

Pink and brown is a classic. I'm a huge sucker for Trekking, too. Those are going to be so pretty!

I've never seen that particular colorway but do like it! And remember, pink and brown counts as a classic so the trends don't matter :o)

Yeah, I need more sock yarn like I need a plate in my head, BUT, that color might have to be an exception & get purchased. LOVE it. And I love those coconut candies to boot.
