"Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and as it always has, rock crushes scissors." -Sheldon from the "Big Bang Theory"
"Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock" is a fun self-striping pattern of Rock Grey, Parchment Paper White, Scissor Red, Lizard Green and Spock Blue. This listing includes a matching Spock Blue Heel and Toe skein.
Turtlepurl’s “Softshell Striped Turtle Toes” hand-dyed, self-striping sock yarn is a beautiful 3 ply, 70% superwash merino, 20% cashmere and 10% nylon sock yarn. The MCN is a gorgeous & luxiourous yarn. It is truly a joy to knit with and is soft, strong and durable.
We are "dyeing for you to match"! We've made it easy! Turtlepurl's yarn has been dyed to be self-striping. Both strands were dyed together. This will create matching socks that can be easily knit 2 at a time. For matching socks, ensure you start from the same end of each ball. Then watch the magic happen!
There is plenty of yarn for a large pair of socks, or a small scarf.

To ensure your satisfaction with your purchase, please contact me if you have any questions about this product prior to ordering. While I make efforts to photograph the yarn in a natural light, computer monitors can show colours differently so please be aware the hues in the actual yarn may vary from what you see on screen.
Turtlepurl's yarn comes to you in skeins. These skeins will need to be "ball wound" or "caked" before knitting. You will need a yarn swift or a helping hand for this process. If you are new to knitting or need help, please send me a message and I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.
