WOW! Are you guys afraid to delurk, or is nobody reading my blog.....(maybe don't answer that). I was wondering from my last post what people would purchase if they had $100. Thanks to Amber & KnitPastis who did comment, because it may have given me some ideas. Actually I was asking because DH gave me $100 to use for anything related to knitting (i.e. books, needles, yarn, etc). I was hoping I'd get YOUR input so I'd make some good choices. I need to make a decision in the next 24 hours though because I'm running out of sock yarn.
Running out? Why yes, I'm currently knitting with the very last skein of sock yarn in my stash. Lucky for me I did find 2 skeins (when I thought I had none) and although I didn't want to knit with it, now I'm glad I did. It's the KnitPicks Simple Stripes sockyarn in a colorway they don't make anymore. The blues & cream though remind me of the winter in Seattle with the blue rainy skies & clouds over the Puget Sounds, so I've named these the SEATTLE SOCKS. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to keep them or give them away for Christmas, but I am fitting them to my foot, so we'll see. I'm also using the Jaywalker pattern from Grumperina & although she doesn't recommend using fair isle self-striping yarn, I really like the effect!!
