Have you heard? It’s out, in the store, POPPING off the shelves!!! And it’s early!…at least as far as the movie release goes. As you probably know, the release of the Harry Potter Opal Sock Yarn was supposed to coincide with the release of the newest movie. Alas, the movie release was postponed but rejoice Sock Knitters!! This means we can all turn up at our local movie theater donning the Character of Choice (character choices include: Harry Potter, Harry & Ron combined, Ron Weasley, Tonks, Lupin, Dumbledore, Hedwig and Draco Malfoy) on our toesies and half the fun will be playing I Spy for simpatico sock knitters. (Is anyone actually knitting Draco?) So Get Knitting! Finish a pair – or better yet, pick a character for each foot and cast on someone else to knit during the movie!!!! Not to mention, how many Harry Potter followers in your life need a pair of their own?
Not a Harry Potter Fan? Buy a ball of this yarn and become an Opal Fan! This sock yarn is dead soft, reliable and hard wearing. Plus, you won’t believe what this company does with color. Knit the simplest sock you can and watch it come to life with unimaginable color combos, stripes and designs. Dazzle your sock knitting friends and non-knitting friends alike with your fancy footwork.
And remember, Opal creates collections of sock yarn which are only available for a limited time. We are currently offering colors from Rainforest 4 and Hundertwasser 2 as well as the Harry Potter Collection. Do you remember what is is like to pick up a book that is so good you just had to read it cover to cover? Well that is the feeling you’ll get from these awesome yarns – you’ll be knitting a pair of socks top-to-toe non-stop! Happy Knitting!
