Socks, Socks, and More Socks
I completed the Smooth Tomato heels on these socks and am now working on the ankle. This yarn is so soft that I know the socks will keep my feet warm. If I don't get distracted I should have them done next week.
I have gotten just a little beyond the toes on these orange socks. I think they are going to be really pretty, I just need to give them a little more knitting time each day.
But instead of sticking with those two pair of socks I started these. The LYS owner has been dying her own yarn and I had purchased this so when she asked if I had done anything with it I had to go home and start something so I could show her what it was looking like knit up. As can be seen I have really only started with only half of the toe but isn't this soooooo pretty. I said I wanted bright socks and these will really fill the bill.
I even stopped by the LYS today and bought some more sock yarn. But don't judge me. This shop is closing in two weeks and the closest yarn shop now is going to be 59 miles away. So I am stocking up. Its not as though I can't/won't shop elsewhere, it's just that when I want to start something else I want to start, not drive for 2 hours before I can start. I should be set for the spring and maybe even the summer in sock yarn. And since I don't wear socks in the spring or summer they all will be brand new in the fall.
As I said before, I hope to have the top pair done next week so maybe I can get back to the sweater I haven't touched since before Christmas. But before that I will be linking with Patchwork Times, reading the knitting blogs listed there, and then getting back to my knitting. GARI
