Socks and more socks
I get the feeling I'm drowning in socks at the moment. I never thought I'd wear woolly socks in the summer but it's so cold here today I've got woolly socks on my feet and so has Em (who is home sick - although exactly how sick she is I'm not sure).
My new version of the fair isle sock is complete and here is a comparison between version 1 and 2. I much prefer version 2.
I'm thinking of doing the 2nd one with the colours the other way around as that way 50 gr of each colour will be just about enough for most people. If I do both the same way I'll need 60 gr of the purple which means breaking into a 2nd ball for nothing.
Today I cast on for 'Rainforest' in the Yarn Yard May club yarn. Pics tomorrow hopefully. I've nearly finished the cuff already and as i'm not doing anythingtonight I may finish it today. I'm working on a slightly smaller size as the original was large.
Talking about Yarn Yard. Natalie is having a yarn party tonight at 6pm when she puts her new merino sock yarn up for sale. I can't wait to see it but I'm hoping it'll all be sold before I log on as I'm on a major stahsalong. In fact, I'm destashing and selling a lot of stash on Crafty Yarns right now. If there is any left later I'll list some on here too.
And to go with the cold weather down here it's raining and has been for days now. I'm fed up with it and want the lovely weather we had last week. Much nicer.
And I leave you with a pic of my new socks. Name not yet decided, although I'm almost certain.
