i finished these yesterday and am so eager to cast on for another pair of socks. what makes a sock knitter so desperate? ... it's the sock yarns. sock yarns offer so much satisfaction ... they're pretty, inexpensive, and promise hours of knitting!
so, which ones are next?
this baby is opal. i traded some kidsilk spray for this 100 gr ball of yarn that the former owner had picked up on a trip out west. i love how bright it is and the little dots! it's like sunspots.
this is regia, and both these yarns are a wool blend. my previous finished pair is a wool/cotton/polymide blend. i love the subtle shading of this yarn, and it would lend itself well to a textured stitch pattern.
i just can't decide! i have a tendency to follow the path of the least resistance, the least amount of thinking, though, i do want change. i have been knitting lots of socks in plain old stockinette stitch, so sort of want to break that with some patterning.
my sources of choice for inspiration? these two books. but my number one favorite? nancy bush's _folk socks_.
