[Edited because Flickr mixed someone else's pictures in with mine. How weird is that??]
My skein of Socks that Rock arrived today, and yes, it rocks! Pictures simply cannot do justice to the colors in this yarn. I won it complements of January One and Blue Moon Fiber Arts; and it came with one of Cara's beautiful note cards. Can she take a picture or what?!? Thank you Cara and thank you Blue Moon!
I can't wait to see how this incredible yarn is going to knit up, but I'm being firm with myself and finishing my Lorna's Laces/Falling Leaves socks first. As I mentioned in my winning comment on Cara's blog, I have good use for toasty warm hand knit socks. The heat is out at work, and they don't expect it to be fixed for a few more weeks. This is not the problem in central North Carolina that it would be in, like, Wisconsin; but it is still pretty chilly. The up side is, I get to wear all the winter things that usually stay in the back of my closet.
My new and adorable grandson, on the other hand, lives in the chilly highlands of North Carolina, and so should get lots of use from everything I can't seem to stop knitting for him. This one, however, has slowed me down some. What you see here is the result of an entire snow day spent knitting, plus two evenings of knitting-and-classic-movies! It's a good thing it's size 18 months and he won't need it until next fall!
