Last night, I finally finished up the first Campfire sock of the pair I am working on!
The yarn I am using is from Forbidden Fiber Company’s autumn Collection, in the colorway Campfire, on the Gluttony Sock Yarn base.
I wasn’t sure / as excited about the yarn, while looking at it on the website, or even in the hank once I got it. It took winding it, and seeing it in the wound cake to get excited about this colorway.
I was definitely more excited about some of the other colors I had ordered, until I saw the yarn like this. I fell in love with it, when I saw it like this. I couldn’t wait to cast it on and knit it up.
Once I get this pair of socks done (I am working on the cuff of the second sock as of writing this post), I am going to start on Christmas socks, and then come back to the autumn yarn after I get Christmas socks done.
Work, is going to continue to be busy until mid January, so I will knit when I can, and get as much done as I can, on my days off. Come mid January, I will have more time to spend knitting. I want to try to get the yarn I have sitting on my computer table, as well as in my seasonal themed back knit up before spring officially arrives. I will still have a plastic grocery bag of the expensive yarn I ordered back in September / Early October to knit up, but my goal for that is to get it knit up by mid summer. Since the weather won’t be conducive to washing and line drying socks until at least mid to late June. once work slows down in January, I want to get as many pairs of socks knit up as possible in the months between then and when summer arrives.
I have also been looking at moving, and leaving the west coast behind. A lot of it has to do with the cost of living, cost of land / house prices, no real job prospects for someone like myself, more of a knitting community that is made up of more like minded individuals, living among more like minded individuals, Homesteading communities, and fiber festivals that my favorite indie dyers and small yarn shop owners attend.
