the best for last ?!
this is so not mine ! it's corbett's. he's coming down to nc next week, and sent this yarn here as a treat for himself, as he didn't think it would reach his home before hitting the road. so, i get to foster, pet, love it for awhile before he takes custody.
what do i get for my inconvenience? i get this ! YAY !
both lovelies are from fearless fibers.
on the budget end of knitting ... i have been teaching sock classes at my LYS. i teach the class in three sessions, with homework in between. i finally settled on a good yarn for teaching/learning purposes ... it's plymouth's encore worsted.
i am using a size 6 dpn, and i can get a pair of socks from one ball of yarn! pretty good for such a quality economic yarn ... and, it's pretty!
these will make great christmas gifts ... if i stop knitting them to fit me !
this is the yarn mom picked out for her sockens. i needed a mindless sock project a few days ago, so i cast on for these ... they are as requested ... "no holes, no ridges" . i'm using the newish kp's size 2.25mm dpns.
