"Super Fine"

Sock of the Month: “Saudade” Socks

Take a trip to beautiful Brazil in our colorful "Saudade" Socks ...
Featuring Mountain Colors' Perspectives in Crazyfoot yarn!

The vibrant country of Brazil, with its layered and colorful history, is the inspiration for our gorgeous "Saudade" Socks. The former Portuguese colony has a diverse population of indigenous Americans, descendants of African slaves and European settlers. The country's landscape is just as varied ... from white-sand beaches to lush rainforests and large urban centers ... the country's diversity is famous around the world!

History and landscape combine to create the unique culture of the Brazilian people. It seems they are adept at celebrating happiness and sadness in tandem. For example, the annual Carnaval celebration is a feast of merry-making before the more sober 40 days of Lent ... and Bossa Nova, a genre of Brazilian music featuring the rhythmic patterns of Samba that originated in former African slave communities.

Saudade is described as a "Portuguese way of life" and is the feeling of nostalgia that brings sad and happy feelings altogether. Celebrate life like the people of Brazil with these beautiful socks!

Thank you to Rachel for the inspiration for this sock that she gave us from her trip to Pelourinho in Brazil!

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!
