It's all socks all the time around here. You know, except when it isn't.
These are the Eleanor socks. I knit them on size 2 knitpicks classic circs, 2 at a time top down. I substituted a short row heel for the heel that was written (because it's faster). The yarn is Icebox Fibers Superwash socks. I can find neither hide nor hair of this yarn on the internet, so I assume it is a very small local dyer. I found the base yarn to be a little thin. I would probably use size 1s if I were to do this again. But what is all this talk talk talk? Photos!
Had I said something earlier this year about not buying yarn? That must have just been crazy talk. I stopped by the LYS today to buy some yarn. Things have been crazy at work and I decided that yarn might be a nice soothing thing. So I got a ball of yarn in a color I don't usually knit: green.
Dream in Color Smooshy. I've never knit with it before, so I'm looking forward to it. I'm planning a pair of Thelonious socks for March. And I also got a hank of Chameleon Colororks footsie. The colorway is Indian Wedding, but I think of it as peach and raspberry sherbet. It was on sale. How could I resist?
I learned while I was in there that the folks at the Dancing Ewe read this blog. Hi Janelle, hi Cathy! Ain't the internet grand?
