Sock of the Month: “Lost City” Socks

Visit the ancient stone city of Petra with our "Lost City" Socks ...
Featuring Mountain Colors' River Wash Sport yarn ... 20% OFF!

One of the New 7 Wonders of the World, Petra is a famous archaeological city in southern Jordan and is the country's most-visited tourist attraction. Founded by the once-nomadic Nabataean tribe as early at 312 BC, the city is carved out of rose colored sandstone and includes a sophisticated water collection system. At its height, 30,000 people thrived in this desert oasis!

Petra was lost to the outside world for over 600 years ... from the time of the Crusades.  Then, in 1812, Jean Louis Burckhardt made his way thru the narrow valley leading to the lost city.  Discoveries are still happening in Petra today with only 15% of the city uncovered while the remaining 85% sits untouched underground.

The Nabataean tribe used their knowledge of the desert to establish trade routes which allowed contact and influence from other civilizations. As a result, the architectural style of Petra is a mixture of Egyptian, Assyrian, Hellenistic, Mesopotamian and Roman infused with Nabataean flourishes.

Knit in the perfect color to reflect the rose sandstone of Petra, Amy translated the geometric shapes of the city's most famous attractions, The Monastery and The Treasury, into the textural design seen on the Lost City Socks!

Thank you to Colleen for suggesting the ancient city of Petra, Jordan as inspiration for this month's sock!

Moss Agate Scarf Kit

by Amy Loberg

Worked with three colors of hand dyed yarn, this pretty scarf is not only a simple crochet project (you only need to know 2 stitches), but one that is great for traveling and gift crocheting. The pattern starts with three different rows, but after row three you are repeating the same row throughout the rest of the project.

And ... did we mention no ends to weave in! Simply leave a 5" tail (for fringe) with each color change as you crochet and then add some extra fringe pieces at the end for a seriously gorgeous scarf you will love to wear or give!
