A Tale of Two Yarns

I this on a couple of blogs this morning, and I thought it would be fun to play along!

Each day this week I will posting about the topic listed for the day on the website. Today's post: A Tale of Two Yarns.

I have decided to talk about my favorite sock yarn, and one that I was not crazy about. First up, my favorite sock yarn:
Duh. It's Socks That Rock. I love all weights of this yarn. I love that it's tightly spun, and I love the colorways. The only drawback on this yarn for me is I wish the yardarge was a little more. I would knit a lot more shawls with it if it was!

Some other sock yarns I like: Kollage Sockalicious, Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock, and Malabrigo. Yum. Malabrigo.

And, here is a sock yarn I am not so crazy about:

Collinette Jitterbug. I know lots of people like it and I really thought I would too. The colors are amazing and it is also tightly spun. When I first tried it I thought it would become a standby for me, a fav that I would often turn to. I don't know. I just didn't like it that much. Haven't bought some in years. Maybe I should give it another try!

What are your fav and not so fav sock yarns?

Happy knitting. Hope you enjoy all my blogging this week! :)
