Sushi Socks

Remember the sushi yarn I dyed some time ago? The Sushi Socks just appeared! Aren't they great? It is exactly how I envisioned them when I dyed the yarn. I'll definitely try another skein. They were knit by Naomi using a toe up pattern. Good job, Naomi!.

Society Socks has new yarn!

I've just finished my first lot of yarn for the summer. You can see Miss T inspecting the most recent skeins. I've tried a technique that I am very excited about, using a variegated color and overdying with black. It has proved very popular. My business partner, Lida Saskova, says she does not have time to post our new products on the Society Socks website, so I have created a temporary website to get the yarn out for your inspection. Check it out at New Yarn. All yarn is 75% merino superwash wool and 25% nylon for a very soft, machine washable yarn that wears very well. You can purchase the yarn directly from me by e mailing maryjo@societysocks.com. Cost is $26/skein plus $2.95 shipping (and 6% sales tax if you live in Idaho). If you don't have our instructional DVD, The Zen of Socks, ($19.95) you can also order that directly from me via e mail, and I will send it with the yarn. I'm hoping that we can get everything back up on our regular website soon andPayPal will be available for purchases.
