"Woah." It's a common exclamation when knitters see our wall-o-Lorna's-Laces for the first time. Every color of Shepherd Sock plus lots of Solemate and Sportmate stretched out over a long wall of our 3500 square foot shop, ready to be squished between fingers. It's intoxicating.
Our wall of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock keeps growing and growing as Beth and her crew release awesome new batches of color, and this season's new selections certainly deserve a prime place on that wall. Take a look at what their busy team dyed up for us- we're the first shop to get all these new colors, according to Lorna's Laces. Five Multicolors and one Nearly Solid
Go back and click on those images if you didn't. They are truly larger than life.
We also have a special treat. Several years ago, Lorna's Laces dyed up a spooky, sinister colorway for our Halloween Kit. (Shown below on Solemate)
This color, Maleficent's Spindle, was a fave of many and since there's a new Maleficent movie coming out soon, I thought I'd let this color pop back on Solemate and Sock. So if you wanted another skein of this, or missed out on the fast-selling kit a few years ago, or wanted it on Sock... well, there you go!
While this skein does look fab in socks (I've seen a few dozen myself, and I know there are hundreds more out there knit up or waiting to be knit) I think it also would make a really nice lacey scarf or shawl to wear around Halloween. The deep purples and charcoal are set off by just a bit of pale green and I think it make such a great combo. If you wanted something super simple to knit, perhaps do the Drop Stitch Scarf, Lace Ribbon Scarf, Noro Wave Scarf, or the One Row Lace Scarf. Want something a bit more challenging? Try Clapo-ktus, Imagine When, or Trillian.
Waiting on restocks of particular colors? I currently have for you over 120 colors of Sock in Multicolors, over 50 Nearly Solids, and 9 of the one-row Stripes. Also look at the 80 colors of Solemate (fingering weight) and Sportmate (sport weight) if you like a litte bit of Outlast fiber in your socks for temperature and moisture control.
