On the sock front, I am close to being finished with the SWTC socks. I should be able to get these finished today, that is if the kids will let me. I really like the TOFUtsies yarn, it is soft and the finished sock is wonderful. DD1 is in love with the color of this one (color 789) so I may have to get more of this for her. I am almost finished with the gusset decreases and then it goes really quickly. If only the "Mom Cab" didn't have to make so many runs a day, I could get stuff done. I really need to clean my house. Now that they are home, it is a total disaster.... not that I was such a great housekeeper to begin with.
Sheri at The Loopy Ewe had a little of the new Cherry Tree Hill Sockittome sock yarn. I don't think this yarn is expected to be in shops until early fall, but she had a small test run sample. I was very happy to be able to grab some of that while it was available. I bought the Moody Blues colorway. This yarn is nice. It feels a little thicker than the supersock, well to me it does anyway. I was worried I was going to wear all the good off of this yarn before I even got half a sock knit. I frogged it about 5 times before I decided to go with this. I don't know why I chose the rosewood needles with this dark yarn, my eyes are not liking the dark yarn on the dark needles much ... I know better than to do that. All my other needles must be occupied...anyway, that is my excuse for this error in judgement.
Last night DD1 and I drove up to just south of Indy. A friend of mine used to have a yarn shop, she closed last summer :( She still has some yarn she wants to sell, so every now and then she will open a small shop and have a knit in and try to sell some yarn. She had one lonely hank of Soxie Great Adirondack yarn left in the Beach House color . I had to have it. This is a sock yarn I have never knit with, it is soft. It seems a little thinner to me than what I normally knit with. I may have to knit this on 0's, and it only has 360 yards, so that will limit my pattern choices since I have such huge size 10 feet. I will hopefully be able to go back up to her shop the next time she is open and buy more sock yarn.
That is about it for today. I better get knitting on that sock if I hope to have it done by tomorrow. Enjoy your weekend and happy knitting!
