KnitPicks, Knitter's Talk, Knitting, Socks, Wool, Yarn

I haven’t been this excited for yarn in ages!

Hey Everyone!

Yesterday, after I had finished up the second Tea Rose sock, I cast on the first sock of my next pair, using KnitPicks Stroll tonal Fingering yarn, in thunderhead tonal. I have been anxiously awaiting getting the Tea Rose pair done so I could cast on this pair.

This yarn is so soft and pretty. Not to mention it is knitting up amazingly too. I was a little concerned at first that it might knit up like a super wash yarn, which is the Bain of my existence. All the super wash sock yarn I have used has been a royal pain in the butt. This yarn cast on and knit off the first row beautifully.

Grey has become my second favorite, yet most sought after color to knit with. I have been getting my hands on all the grey sock yarn I can find.

I more than surpassed my goal for today on what I wanted to get knit up today, I wanted to finish up the cuff and get at least 25 rows of the leg knit up. I did all that and knit up 33 rows of the leg. I wanted to get as much done before I work again Thursday and Friday.

With so many projects in the works and more lined up as I get each one done, and I have way more yarn for pairs of socks to knit up, that I am trying to make full use of my days off, and get as much knitting as I can done.

As the weather gets nicer, come spring, I will be wanting to get out more and do more hiking, so I am trying to make use of this winter. As it is, I have two pairs of socks done that I need to wash and block on a nicer, warmer day.
