Not so long ago I was knitting up 3 or 4 pairs of socks a month. Now I'm excited I finished this one sock after weeks of dawdling. This slowdown is bound to lift soon as nothing motivates sock knitting like the knowledge that your sock yarn stash is now officially out of control! I have a bit more Duet Sock yarn coming in and I joined one more sock club. That's it. I'm done buying for a long long time. I know, I know, you've all heard that before, but really really really. I'm taking a break from sock yarn buying at least until we move. I'll give myself a couple exemptions (like if the Knitting Group does decide to go to The Fold), but my sock yarn boxes just can't take anymore!
The sock to the right is the first Conifer Sock from the Pick Up Sticks Sock Club. The yarn is Apple Laine Apple Pie in English Garden. I'm using size 2.5mm (US 1) Inox double points. As you can see, the second sock has begun. The sooner I get it done, the sooner I can start on the Rockin' Sock Club kit!
***Knitting Group has moved! We'll still be meeting on Wednesdays (tonight!), but instead of the Borders we have moved a little west to the new Starbucks in Wilmette (corner of Lake & Laramie, just to the west of I-94 on Lake Ave.). We meet from 6:30 until 8ish and any yarn enthusiast is welcome!***
