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.
