On the Needles October 12, 2012

Last night I finished my first Opal sock.  It is sock sport yarn so it is a little heavier then I am used to using and a little coarser too.  It is a lovely blend of purples, light blues and off white.  I think it is called Color Party.  The label says Farbe Partie.

I have barely started the second sock.  I bought 4 different skeins of Opal Yarn for the Socktober Fest but I'm not sure I can get 4 pair done since I'm almost a week behind already.  I do have some long car rides at the end of the month so hopefully I will catch up then.

We are suddenly having fall like weather here in Phoenix.  It is 11 am and still only 69 degrees so we are enjoying it and I am looking forward to all my new socks to wear.

Check out the other needlers at Patchwork Times.


  1. Pretty! My Opal sock yarn is also "farbe partie" but is more cream and pastel stripes. I wish I had bought more. It has been fun to knit.

  2. I love the colors of this sock. Very pretty. I should get busy and learn to knit socks. My mother's name was Opal and she would smile if she knew I was knitting with a yarn named for her! lol
