She's a maniac, maniac...

Nooo, I'm not flashdancing in my living room, but I am a maniac for socks these days! After finishing my first pair of socks, I went looking for a new pattern and some yarn. I bought some knit picks yarn in "Zinnia" and a pattern called Seaweed socks by designer Nancy T McGlynn. It's a fun pattern to knit and has a really cool pattern. The pattern can't be seen until the first 12 rows are completed. I sat back and looked at what I'd knitted and thought "wow"! The Zinnia colored yarn is perfect for this month's Project Spectrum! See progress below. My picture doesn't do the pattern justice. I'm going to have to try different angles/shots to get better pics.



Of course, I couldn't stop at buying 2 little skeins of yarn for a pair of socks, I went CRAZY! Between internet shopping and supporting my LYS, I have enough yarn to make socks into the next millennium! (Nah, not really...Maybe next few months!). Don't even get me started on the handpainted yarns! (excuse me...Drooling). Here is a pic of yarn goodness!


I'm also in the middle of making a bolero type cardi...Photos later. It's cloudy and chilly...Dammed cold in MA! So, I'll get lots of knitting done today.

Enjoy today and get knitting!!

Wow, great sock yarn stash already! How fun. It's sort of cloudy here in MN, too - a great day for knitting.

I know what you mean!! I've started on my first sock (again--third time's a charm!) and this time it's going much better, and I can't stop thinking about sock yarn! Lorna's Laces, KnitPicks sock yarn, anything handpainted.... Sock yarn is easiest to buy on impulse, I think, because you don't have to worry that you don't have a project for it, and you know exactly how much you need, and they're not that expensive. PERFECT.

I'm drooling over your sock yarn stash! Yummy! Nothing beats having tons of yarn on hand, just in case. . .

It's nice to know I'm not the only person who was immediately addicted to socks after I knit my first one. It's a great addiction to have- no one ever dies from it and there's no cure!

Take care. . .
