The color of this fingering yarn is called smores. The earthy colors really do remind you of this treat. I will wear these socks when I catch up to my New England chat friends next summer at a campground, all the while roasting smores over an open flame while enjoying the smell of Maine’s pine trees.
If you’ve never had smores, it is a graham cracker topped with a marshmellow, chocolate and another graham cracker. The fun part is the “ooziness” of the marshmellow on your fingers as you quickly lick the perimeter of this great delicacy (dare I say!). I think I will revise this traditional recipe and add a dollop of strawberry jam.
Yes, there really is a candybar called “Smores”. I used this blog as an excuse to purchase the candy bar. I was feeling somewhat frustrated trying to take this picture in the correct indoor evening lighting. I was anxious to taste this candybar. It is delicious but I was surprised that it seems to have the taste of rum in it. Now, mind you, I am not a liquor conneisseur (I fall under the table after two drinks). So, perhaps you should taste it for yourself.
Well, I’ve been writing more about the candybar than the socks. The yarn is Merino wool and is extremely soft. I’ve yet to knit the 2nd sock as I suffer from the not so rare knitter’s malady of SSS (single sock syndrome). I actually belong to a knitting Yahoo group called SSS….sort of like a 12-step program. Ok…….I’m kidding about the 12-step program.
