Sensational, indeed

Well, the Sensational Knitted Socks book came today! It looks very well thought out and full of interesting patterns and tips. I can't wait to get started on some of these. I have some sock yarn that I bought from Knit Picks a while back that I never did anything with, so I'll have the yarn ready to go once I narrow down which one I want to try first.

Went to Ruth-Anne's last night for some knitting. I worked on the rug and she worked on her cool, stripey socks while we watched "The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe". She mentioned to me that her niece called her just before I got there and mentioned that City Side Yarn Co. is having a big sale on a lot of their wool yarns. So she and I are going to head over there on Thursday afternoon to see what they have left. Hopefully it won't all be picked through by that point! I'd love to find just the right yarn for a sweater. The problem is that I still don't have the pattern for the sweater picked out yet, so I wouldn't know how much I would need to buy. I guess I could take an educated guess and maybe add 20% just to be safe.

Guess that's about it for now. More later!

Pg. 50. That is the sock I am trying to accomplish. The 2 at once is a headache.

Which pattern are you trying it in? Is it the basket weave that is shown on page 50? That looks like a nice one!
