Ok, so I have to confess, I do have my share of sock yarn, even though I did not really consider myself a sockie. I guess now I have been bitten by the bug. And I do have plans for much of it. Some for socks and some for hats and scarves and gloves. There is lots of inspiration out there. Here is a page of socks to give ya’ some. I found it on Anna’s blog, and even though I do not read Swedish (a great handicap in blogland), I know a hot link when I see one, and I follow!
I really want to make these socks. There is a Koigu in my stash just begging to be Diana's socks! who reads German and can send a translation? Thanks! Danke!
But some yarn is just too wonderful to knit. Don’t you have yarn like that? Yesterday I received my first order of Sundara Yarn. It came so quickly!! I read about it, and drooled, all over blog land. And its true! It is too gorgeous to knit! You be the judge:
You want me to get a bit closer? ok, but go wash your hands first!
Closer still? well, all right.
And I am just going to let it sit by my computer and smile at it when the going gets tough...
I am making progress on my second Florida colors sock AND, true to my new philosophy of no more one project monogamy, I have started the reversible hat. The outside is Sock It to Me Collection-puzzle from ellan. The inside will be alpaca and silk. Yummm!!!
You cast on from a crochet chain and later take out the chain, PU stitches and knit the hat again from same cast on stitches. I am a bit nervous about pulling the chain, but I think it will be nice and warm!!
