This week let’s talk about medium weight hand painted fingering weight yarn. Why? Because even though many have predicted that the sock-knitting craze would wane, it’s still going strong. And, if you are also a sock knitter who enjoys cables as much as I do, then you know that you just can’t get that crispness that a cable pattern demands in a 2-ply fingering weight sock yarn.
Enter Rocket Sock Medium. This 4-ply superwash wool yarn (that is NOT of the super scratchy variety) is exactly what light-weight cabled patterns demand! Hand painted for total OOAK uniqueness, Rocket Sock Medium holds its shape and gives your cables the raised crispness that you want, especially if you have plans to share pictures of your finished pair of socks or gloves on your favorite social media site.
You are in luck this week if the perfect sock yarn is what you’re searching for because there are plenty of new colorways in the shop to choose from! Some colorways, like Roller Derby, Wacky Duck, and Venetian, are hand painted multis in a collection of amazingly deep colors. Others are self-striping, including Sexy Cyclops, Pickles & Jam, and Solitude.
