Why, yes.

It is all about Socks that Rock all the time. Well, it is easier to take quick pics of pretty yarn than finishing my sweater WIP's, especially seaming my Grace sweater. As Irishgirlie pointed out rather well, tapmouse & I freed her of a few skeins of yarn after her visit to mecca.


left to right: lightweight mill ends in Queen Rock, Azure Malachite, County Clare, and a "Bronze"


I normally don't go for heavyweight (minus the occasional Funky Monkey), but this skein said Monkey1 all over it.


Another Rare Gem, this time in lightweight. Sorta Dixie Chick gone sideways or goth or Lost.


I love getting new yarn cause they motivate me to finish at least one project.


same deets as before:

Interesting how the two socks look slightly different in color-one more blue, the other more brownish! The pair turned out great!

And I can hardly wait to see the progress on Grace!
