Sweet Georgia Yarns are a nice find.
Sweet Georgia is hand-dyed yarn out of Vancouver Candada. I especially like the Tough Love Sock yarn, cute name for a sock yarn. It's an 80% superwash merino wool & 20% nylon fingering weight yarn, 425 yards, I chose colorway Lakeshore Drive. Sadly, the photo of my finished socks does not do it justice.
Sweet Geogia's photo is much better.
These socks were apart of a birthday gift. They were planned to match up a color theme of bright turquoise blue and bright green.
I hazard to share the story....because it just may confirm something ...... about me. YIKES!
It all started with a Dodo case for the iPad....so socks are always a natural choice as a gift compliment, right? ......not really...... but for those of you who know..... I know you understand.
I also added a couple of knit tops in the same colors. Yes, that's right.....everyone wants to match there Dodocase to their outfit to their socks. My dear friend is such a good sport.......
But it really didn't end there....... while in Target, I found a perfectly matching desk set of paperclips, binder clips and push pins...... which would coordinate with the Dodo case on her desk.......how geekey is that? (I wish I had taken a picture of them, because you wouldn't believe it)
AND.......you guessed it, they ended in the box too.
My dear friend told me that she got a bit of ribbing over the coordinating desk accessories to her Dodo case.....but I'm guessing, she didn't share with her co-workers that she also had matching knit tops and socks that matched too. Who could blame her.
Moral of this story....
Choose your friends carefully....becasue you may end up with a friend like me....BEWARE!
