It seems I've caught the sock bug. After I finished the Vomit Socks , I realized how much I love the feel of custom fit socks.
So I made a pair out of San Diego Yarn self-striping, which, after another crass comment from D#1, I have dubbed the Vomit Socks - Take Two. Although I did these in straight stockinette, the self-striping pattern kept me going. I'm not sure how well these socks will wear in the long-run. They seem a little pilly after just a few wearings. Maybe the fabric is just blooming a bit. I'll update after a few more wearings and washings.
Last week, I finished my Corny Toes from Maizy yarn in Night Shades. I love the socks and the feel, but this yarn was a pain to work with - very splitty. I'll let you know how they wear.
The next pair will be out of the Wildfoote I bought at Smoky Mountain Spinnery two years ago. I frogged the Crusoe sock that I had done in this because it was just too big.
Waiting in the wings are the following sock yarns:
Cascade Heritage - bought last fall at Smoky Mountain Spinnery.
Kroy in off-white. I bought this on clearance at Michael's for $2.49 a ball. How could I possibly pass that up?
Koigu - Wow! Did you know how expensive this stuff is? I had a gift cerificate left over from Christmas, so I splurged.
