Socks! Socks and More Socks!

Okay socks in the rough but still. I have been knitting a lot lately and my sock yarn stash was starting to show hints of depleting. I needed to refresh my stash. First I went on Saturday to a store I hadn't visited in a long time, but couldn't find anything I liked. (insert look of horror) so waited until Monday and headed to a place I knew I would find what I wanted...Knitting Sisters in Williamsburg. Also so worth the trip. I miss the days when I used to work nearby and could run over on my lunch break, (sniff, sniff).
So I bought few things..., first up, Sockotta Limited in color 9841 by Plymouth Yarn, which reminded me of dreamsicles and because I am dreaming of warm spring days I thought this was perfect! and Sockotta Limited in color 9846, which is a nice mix of browns, greens and blues. Both yarns are 40% superwash wool, 45% cotton and 15% nylon. Then there is the Ja Woll in flaming red. I also purchased an spare cable for my Denise Needles and a french knitter for making cords. But I have a non yarn project in mind for the french knitter, more on that later.

And I just heard today that Sox Experience 2011 is coming! Woot! And Virginia's own Wendy Johnson will be there.

Can't Wait!

OOO, I have knitted down my sock yarn, I'm trying to be super strict on my yarn buying right now.
Of course that means I'll fall off of that commitment soon.

Love those colors! I live 90 miles from my favorite LYS. One of these days I hope to open my own store.....dreaming.....
