I Need Support


It became apparent to me that I should start a Support Group for.....socks without partners. I got the bright idea that I would finish all my started socks and then not knit another new sock until I've knit their partners. However...there's 7 single socks - that means 7 partners need to be knit. Needless to say - this has gotten completely out of hand. 4 of those pairs are for me - the weather is turning colder and I could use them. One is for my husband - and two are for my daughter. BUT.....I've had a thought I could turn all those pairs into Christmas gifts and that could possibly save me alot of Christmas knitting time. Don't you agree?

This is the promised Posh Yarn sock in Chintz Lucia. It's 70% merino 30% cashmere - pure heaven for the feet.

I've started a Sock of the Month Club on the website and boy oh boy - do we love Sock Clubs????!!! What could be better than a surprise package of yarn arriving on a monthly basis! Meghan is hard at work on the patterns and I know they will be inspired.

I can't believe so many days have passed since I last blogged! I had a little health crisis last week which has passed (Thankfully!)so I was a little more distracted than normal. Tonight I'm off to the SnB at Unwind and tomorrow I'm joining the Castoffs for the first time. I hear they are a fun, crazy bunch of knitters so I should fit right in! I can't wait!

Glad you're back; you were missed!
Also glad that everything worked out o.k. for you.
Make sure to bring socks to work on at the Cast Off group, I hear they're always looking to try something new!! And, yes, I'm sure you'll fit right in.
Happy Knitting
