Quick socks and a picture for Carol
Purple socks are finished. They are yummariffic and finished just in time, it got really chilly this week! The toe-up two-at-a-time experiment was a success, I definitely would have made them too long going one-at-a-time top-down (and they probably would have taken more than three weeks). I have more of the same yarn in a pink-and-green colorway, but got contrasting yarn for the heels and toes, so that should be awesome too.
Carol at Thursday's knit night said on Thursday as I was molesting my newest skein of sock yarn (from Sheepy Time, Mandie's Fangorn Forest colorway) said that she would like to see my green sock yarn, as I have a thing for green and she does too. As a stash shake was on today's calendar (seriously, thanks Yarn Harlot Calendar!), I thought a picture would be fun. Meet my green sock yarn.
I think it's time for some Very Green socks. Most all my green socks are variegated or striped somehow. I'm going to work on that.
