Socks...

I have been working on socks lately. I started my second sock. After about 4 inches I realized that the first was a bit larger. I found my tension was not consistent. So, I made a visit to the frog pond. I started the sock over again and am happy to report that so far they match. I have now reached the point where I am starting the heel.

Have you heard about the new cotton sock yarn at www.knitpicks.com ? My birthday is next week, and I always try to do a little something special for myself...So I will be placing an order for some. I can't wait. I just love their stuff!!! A few weeks ago I got some of their simple stripes sock yarn. I haven't tried it yet but the colors are wonderful . It's a wool blend yarn. I also bought the book "Knit Socks Whatever the Yarn!" from eBay. It has patterns for super fine, sports weight and worsted weight. The way it reads to me, you can make socks from Sugar and Cream yarn. I always thought that would be kind of thick but maybe not. The book has patterns for ankle socks for the summer. So you can guess what my next sock adventure will be. :)

Just in case I'm unable to get to catching up with blogs next week, happy early birthday! Treating yourself to fiber sounds just like what I would do too!
