Watermelon Socks

A few months ago my husband and I went to Arizona to see my family. While we were there we visited a yarn store and I bought some vacation yarn (as you do).

The time has come to use the watermelon yarn to make watermelon socks. I can’t wait!

Vacation Yarn

You didn’t seriously think I could manage to go on vacation without acquiring more yarn, did you? 2 Christmases my husband (then boyfriend) and I went to Arizona and I meant to go to a certain yarn shop while we were there. Regrettably, this did not happen, so this year when we were in the area I made double sure that we went. The shop is called Sedona Knit Wits, and it is delightful! They carry a range of beautiful commercial yarns as well as some yarns that are locally dyed. Those are what I ended up buying, since you just can’t get them anywhere else.

I bought a kit for watermelon socks (Eeeeeee!!!) and a gradient ball. It’s a good thing I’ve decided to make more socks. Although, now that I think of it a watermelon shawl sounds amazing! Which would you choose?
