Great Things still come in SNAIL mail....

http://www.angoravalley.com/ What a fantastic site to buy yarn online! I ordered some yarn yesterday to knit a pair of socks for my mother. The yarn arrived today. That's right, ordered yesterday after lunch, arrived today before I had toast (9:30 a.m. for those of you who don't work with me). It's beautiful. It's springy to the touch and supremely fabulous, but since I've committed to a sock right now and Marcy is finishing her blackrose sock I am going to wait to start this sock for mom. Probably not too long since Marcy is in the home stretch and my sock can always be put down in order to do this one, PLUS I'm leaving for Italy in 2.5 weeks and I'm not going to be silly enough to not pack enough socks to entertain myself with while I sit on an airplane or relax in the hotel in the evenings. So, are you wondering what pattern Marcy and I have decided on this time? It's called Nutkin and it's a free patter on Knitzi, Not to be confused with Knitty. As long as I'm mentioning Knitty can I also mention that I'm going to add these fantabulous hats to my 'knitting to do' list. They are called Fishy. I also know that you are dying to see what sock I'm knitting right now, it's really has become my standby sock pattern. The Super Simple Short Sock by Radiant Twist it's really just the yarn that changes at this point. So without further writing here they are, the yarns and the partial sock.

This colorway is called Wild. I love it. I can't wait till I make it into
something fabulous for my feet.

This is called 'New Country' This is the colorway I chose for Mom and she agrees with me. She likes it. This will be come Nutkin

This is my next Super Simple Short Sock. I love the colors and the stripes are fabulous.

Happy St. Patricks Day!
