On the Needles Friday
It is also Kroy sock yarn, but striping this time. It should be interesting when I start the second sock, since I didn't make a note of where the colours were when I started the first one, so I could end up with 2 totally differently striped socks. I was reading the other entries at Judy's Patchwork Times and Carol was talking about some yarn that she ordered that was on sale, and gave the link to the store. Just out of curiosity, I went and checked it out. You know what happened next, don't you? Yep, there is yarn coming to my house. The thing is, there is no comparison between the way these socks feel, and store bought ones. So, like I said, I'm hooked on knitting socks. I have a few different yarns coming, including one that will maybe pool instead of stripe. Judy has a challenge going about getting sock colours to pool rather than to stripe, and I just might join in. I've never actually met Judy, but she is really having an influence on me, and getting me to do all kinds of things I've never done before. Have I mentioned lately that I love blogging, and the people I've met through it?
