Itchy brain

You know when you can’t remember the name of something and it drives you crazy?! I have been trying to think of a yarn that I used for socks for both of my parents ages ago. Unfortunately, this was before I was good about putting almost every project that passed over my knitting needles on Ravelry. It was a sock yarn that was super soft, had a little halo when you knit it, had a bit of bamboo, could be washed and dried like it was no problem, and had a fake fair isle patterning on it. I’ve been wondering about it for a couple of months. When my LYS reopened it wasn’t in the sock yarn area and I didn’t know if it was one that hadn’t made it back into the shop yet, or if it was all gone. Tonight it came to a fever pitch because I just had to know. It was killing me.

Thank goodness for Ravelry!!!

For an inexpensive sock yarn, I was pretty impressed. I still want more, but maybe there is a small chance that my LYS has some somewhere. It seems like the company has other yarns with similar fiber makeups, so if I really must have something like it, I’ll be able to find something like it. I’m just glad to have the mystery solved, and this is a good lesson to keep up my project page so I know what the heck things are!

  1. Glad you figured it out. That makes me nuts when I can’t remember something like that. Online is one of my favorite inexpensive sock yarns. It’s one of those yarns that refuses to stay in my stash pile.

  2. Yarn on the second picture looks EXACTLY like Rico Superba Bamboo 4 ply. I’ve knitted with it only two months ago or so. Is it possible that the yarn has been renamed?

  3. I have purchased several varieties of Online’s sock yarn on Ebay…including some of the “Emotion II” series. The fiber content is the same as the “Emotion III” in your pic, but I’m not sure it has the fair isle patterning.
