What's this???!? Has Hedwig turned into a tropical bird?? Alas, sometimes my one project at a time plan (more on that one of these days) doesn't always happen. Ms. H, Fearless Yarn Leader at LYS, suggested I make one small sock as a store sample of this new yarn (Farmhouse Yarns Bo Peep sock yarn) and keep the rest of the yarn. Natch, the deal was sealed immediately. I'm doing a toe-up sock from a chart pattern in the Summer issue of IK. Notice the 2 circs waiting in the wings; I borrowed dpns from the misc. needle cup at work to start there and switched this morn to circs.
I'm not much of a sock knitter, I have to confess. I'm hard on my socks, I'm a loose knitter, I'm not wild about dpns, and I like bigger needles for a variety of reasons. I've only made a few in all my years of knitting. I didn't understand the craze until I found The Twisted Sisters Sock Workbook by Lynne Vogel. Wow, what creativity! Will Cindy now be photographing socks everywhere out in the world . . . stay tuned, I haven't a clue.
