I Have Flat Feet...

in the literal and yarny sense.

I've been stalking Paradise Fibers for a while now. They are carrying something that I want... Flat Feet. It's such a cool idea. You knit your project off the flat fabric, unraveling as you go.

Flat Feet Sock Yarn

The color is called Mystic Lake- purple, blue, and olive. The thing about this yarn is that I have no idea how it will knit up.

Flat Feet- Up Close

They must dip dye the natural colored yarn in fabric form.

Flat Feet Center Join

There's a central join so you can do 2 at once if that's your style. Plus, I don't have to weigh the yarn like I usually do to split into 2 balls.

Now the tough part of my packing begins. What to bring to knit??? I am starting a new project for this trip. Socks probably. But there are almost too many options. Tomorrow I'll flash you the contenders.

Thank you to all the soldiers and military families! We really appreciate what you do to keep us safe. Take care of yourselves. And come home soon.

Lovely and intriguing! You'll have to show us how it knits up in a project!

It's really intriguing, but the socks I saw being knitted up were on the thin side (some Sock Campers bought out the lys' stock), so I'm not in too much of a hurry to get a "flat" myself. Their colors are so pretty though.

Love the color palette! I'm curious how the yarn is, being knit beforehand.

I haven't been lucky enough to score some yet. It sold out in no time at all when Woolgirl got it in. I love the colors you picked.

I have wanted to try these, but I haven't been lucky enough to find them in stock. I am eager to hear what you think of it.
