Yikes! We are lucky to have so many color choices - I have narrowed it down to the demure Claras Garden and luscious Hawthorne - both exciting in their own right. Thanks Lorna's Laces.

Two? I want one of each! Dupage and Icehouse are my choices.


The first socks I ever knit were Regia & they are just now beginning to wear out after 15-16 years (the sole is wearing thin because I mostly wore ghdm with clogs). It's nice to see some great color ways from them again. They were pretty uninspired for a few years. Having crafters design them might be the answer. As for Lotns's Laces, I've been a fan for even longer - since Lorna still owned it. But the "new" owner (so sitry I forget her name) has taken it in so many new ways with so many gorgeous color ways while keeping & slightly reinventing Lorna's classics (like Aslan which now looks a bit different from the old Aslan I have in my stash). And I LOVE all the Chicago names for color ways. Just wondering when she'll get around to Oak Park & Evanston. I love that old favorites keep developing & improving. I just wish Regia would bring back & expand their Bamboo sock yarn. It's roughly equal parts bamboo & Superwash wool plus about 20% polyamide. It is THE most comfortable warm weather sick yarn I've ever used.


I forgot to mention a color way for Lorna's Laces! So hard to choose but I think I'd have to go with Catalpa & Satsuma.
