Lately I am obsessed with knitting socks. I can't stop buying sock yarn. Yet another thing to collect! I have enough yarn to knit socks for the next 4 years. This is the 10th pair of socks that I've finished. They were knit from the toe up with a free pattern by Wendy Johnson, Sprucy Lucy. The pattern is great, but with this tweed-y sock yarn it doesn't show up enough for all the effort . I'm a relatively new knitter, so this is one of the things I'm learning - how to pick the right yarn for the pattern and visa versa. I love the yarn though. It's Zauberball. Watching the colors change makes the knitting more interesting. There are no repeats in the order of the colors, that I can tell, so each sock comes out different. I like that!
