An Oops and a Finished Project..

I fell off the wagon, again. It had been several months since I last purchased yarn, and I had pledged to work only from my stash until I cut it down to an amount that would fit in my new book shelves of the previous post. Wel-l-l-l-l-llll, I only ordered one skein of sock yarn and everyone says that sock yarn doesn't count as stash (unfortunately, it still costs money).

So what yarn was so irresistible to me? Well, I ordered it from Loribird (Ravelry and Plurk ID) at The Wool Room and it is incredibly soft. The colors are just as beautiful in real life as the picture. I am thinking that it will become a pair of fingerless mitts, if I can stop petting it long enough to take my needles to it. I advise everyone to rush to The Wool Room and buy up the lovely, squishy yarn and vivid, gorgeous rovings! I have a finished object to share with you all, as well. It is my Just Add Needles Toe-up Socks for the Knitting Purls Toe-up KAL, knit in STR light-weight in the January One colorway. They are for my size 12, sasquatch feet and they are only anklets because I don't wear socks that could be restrictive on the lymphedema of my legs.
That is all for now. I will try to post again soon!


  1. Beautiful job on the socks, and I love the sock blockers; I need to get myself a pair. Pretty new yarn too - I've been attracted to anything that reminds me of Spring lately, and those colors definitely do!

  2. Beautiful clourways and those socks are very well knitted.

  3. Oh my goodness! Gorgeous purples and blues!!! You are right - it doesn't count as stash. :)

    Wonderful job on the socks as well!! I am sitting up in bed trying to figure out this Turkish cast-on business with dpns!! Wish me luck! :)

  4. Great socks! And that yarn.... yummy.
