Karma

Usually we think of the concept of karma in a punitive way... you know, "what goes around comes around,".... if you do bad things, bad things happen to you. Of course, it actually works both ways -- if you put goodness out in the world, karma says that good will come back to you. I had a lovely package in the mail today that's living proof of that.


Isn't it gorgeous? It's a skein of lightweight Socks That Rock in the "Knitters Without Borders" colorway. I think I told you that it was on the way... a prize in a contest that Deb on the Web ran to help raise money for the CCFA. So, my beautiful skein of STR and 2mm needles are an example of good karma.

I'm especially thrilled, because (believe it or not) I've never actually knit with STR. I go to the web site regularly and drool, but somehow I never got around to an order. And I'm especially thrilled with the Knitters Without Borders colorway, since Blue Moon makes a charitable donation to Doctors Without Borders with each sale, so it's doing good a second time (kind of "karma squared").

I'd like to try a new pattern for socks... something I haven't done before, and that would show off the STR to best advantage. Anyone have a good idea for a sock pattern with this yarn? I was kind of thinking of trying Sidewinders, but I'm open to ideas. What do you think? What would you do?

I didn't realize you hadn't tried STR before. I'm sorry if I create an addict:) I love Tina's yarns! She's pretty fabulous as well.
Have you tried the Monkey pattern by Cookie? I think it would look great with this yarn.

I love the feeling of STR more than the colors, which are wonderful.
