When the new Rockin' Sock Club kit arrived(spoiler alert!), immediately after I opened it and hung up the phone with knittinggolfer (who called to share the joy!), all I thought was...I want to cast this on right now. But I had to go back to work. When I got home, I thought, right now. But then Snowboarder called wanting to go out.
But late Friday night....I wound my skein (SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!) and cast on. Its the first sock club shipment all year that I've been able to cast on...right now!
And I'm loving it!!
But here, for those who don't want to be SPOILED!! Look at the doggies and then click away....
In her Dyer's notes, Tina said she tried to recreate a Rare Gem that a bunch of us begged her for! I even remember the blog post! And she did it from memory too! I had no idea it was going to be our sock club colorway!! I heart it big time!! Thanks Tina...I'm still dreaming of this in LSS and heavyweight!
Hopefully I'll finish the first sock today. I'm knitting the pattern, Fraggle Squiggle Socks, and I love it! Sure, the pattern would look absolutely stunning in a shaded solid, but I also love the texture and what it does to the colorway! Of course, I'm also planning to order another skein of this to make a pair of Cotty socks!
Hope you are all enjoying the long weekend!!
