my version of Socks Like BrachsThursday, October 05, 2006
After seeing several versions of these from Claudiasblog, knitting iris and Posie Gets Cozy, I new I HAD to have this yarn. As a child, these were my favorite candy! Alicia mentioned that she purchased this yarn from Abundant Yarn.
Of course I called them immediately, and they informed me that that yarn had been discontinued! I was sick. I called my mom and she suggested that I call skacel and see who they sold it to. Well, she did better than that. MY awesome mom got on-line, and found out ALL of their customers, I mean ALL of their customers. She called every yarn store in 20 states................she was on the phone for days. Well, voila, my dear sweet mom (whom I LOVE SOOOOOO MUCH!) found this delicious yarn. She also found the delicious (are they still?) candies!! I was so thrilled. As a child, I ate them one layer at a time. Are they missing the carmel layer? I think so. That was my favorite part.
I decided to make mine knee socks. I am envisioning them peeking their tops out of a pair of boots while wearing a brown skirt! How cute!
