So, people who know me know that I have a love/hate relationship with socks. I love to browse sock patterns and buy sock yarn and wear my hand knit socks. I do not like knitting them. This is a problem because without the knitting, you don't have hand knit socks you see. So, I'm starting 2009 with a new sock attitude. I've started Magic Looping to see if that may help me get excited!
You may recall that the Scooter requested "blue stripey socks". I think this yarn would be a lot more attractive in an adult sized sock because the stripes would be thinner but he's very happy with it.
I also signed up for a swap where I knit a pair of socks for a non-knitter. Maybe knitting for someone who has been wishing and hoping for hand knit socks will motivate me. My partner picked the yarn:
Now, these are not typical "me" colors but I"m very interested to see how it knits up. It's Adorn sock yarn dyed in the Clodagh colorway by Three Irish Girls. You know how I love indie dyers!
