When I decided that I wanted to go up to Savannah to The Frayed Knot,
it was to look for one of these.
It is a sock kit from Heidi and Lana
I bought one of the sock kits.
And, then I bought a whole lot more.
But, let's start with the sock kit.
This is what was inside the corrugated packaging.
You get some lovely merino/nylon sock yarn.
The colorway I bought is Foliage.
You get a pattern for shortie socks,
but there is enough yarn to make any kind of socks you like.
You get 100 grams/420 yards.
I will definitely be giving the shorties a try, but I'll use a yarn in my stash,
one that has shorter yardage.
You also get a pair of footie sock blockers,
some cards to keep track of your rows,
and a card with a stitch marker, a progress keeper, and a darning needle.
I was also looking for some sock minis to put in my scrappy blanket.
The shop was thin on the ground for minis.
There were only two colorways available and I already had the other one.
So . . . one came home.
It's an eye searing peachy orange called ... NEON peach.
That should add a happy pop of color on my blanket.
I wasn't going to go to the other yarn store in Savannah,
but since our walking-around time was cut short by a massive thunderstorm,
we did go to Unwind.
There was much yarn success there.

I'm sensing a theme here with these last purchases.
I think I'm ready for some cooler weather of autumn and winter.
