A squock

A squock = a single sock being knit for a fellow Squammer in a special swap based on the Sock Roulette I played a fair few moons ago. The yarn is dyed by another Squammer as part of a collection reflecting the Winter Light in her part of the world. I love how knitting on this and with this makes distance diminish, Alaska feels closer. Time compresses, the memories from last October are more vivid again. I can feel the excitement of the first single sock swap and the pleasure of first experiences of a new yarn and a new technique. So much in a few loops in some yarn.

Beautiful yarn...and knitting one sock seems to be about the only thing I have accomplished in knitting for a long time.

I adore this idea. I remember when I first started a blog that a group of knitters were doing a single sock swap. I hadn't seen it since but think it's such an excellent idea. Beautiful colors too...it does look like a winter sunset!

Hello, how lovely to find you. The moment I saw your banner I was transformed into a world of hand knit goodness, absolutely lovely, looking forward to more. I hope your swap goes well, I swapped a swift case for a pair of hand knit socks, it was great! - Annie
