Which STR Would You Choose?

My sock kit pal indicated that she’d love some Socks That Rock, and I can’t say I blame her. I made my sockapalOOOza pal her socks in STR, and it was great to work with! So of course, I opted to order my kit pal some STR.

When I ordered, I asked Melissa at Blue Moon Fiber Arts over email if she could think of a colorway that was mostly purple, blue, and red. She suggested Rolling Stone, which I recall seeing at January One (doesn’t Cara have every color?), and sure enough, it looked like it fit the bill.

I also ordered a hank of Azurite as a backup plan — here are Cara’s azurite Jaywalkers — since my pal mentioned a purple preference and I decided that if Rolling Stone didn’t work out, Azurite would be great.

I received the yarn today! Hooray!

But now I have to decide which colorway to send her!

Pretend you are my sock kit pal and prefer purples, reds, and blues. Which yarn would you prefer?

STR Rolling Stone — purple, teal, navy, cranberry, and an olivey-kiwi color:
rolling stone
STR Azurite — white, black, shades of purple
STR Azurite

I may have to just send both!

    Both are fabulous, but I’ll go with Rolling Stone

    Also being a big fan of purple – I like the azurite. It’s just more purply to me. Your pal is so lucky!

    I’d have to go with the Azurite – it’s more purple-centric, although both are gorgeous.

    Hmmm… that azurite looks lovely in the hank, but the gray is quite prominant in the Jaywalkers. I’m not sure about the olive in the other hank. I think I’d have to swatch to see how each looks knit up. ;)

    My personal favorite is the Azurite, however, based on the criteria of purple, red and blue, I would go with the Rolling Stone. Both are beautiful.
