As I pulled out black yarns for the Repair of the Convertible Shrug, I decided it was a good time to line up my sock yarn for a little flash action. Most of my yarns are hand painted: Scout, Mama-E, Marie (whom I forgot to mention as one of the lovelies I met on Saturday), Lisa Souza, STR, Carole, Jessica, Heide, and me are represented on that bed. I have some commercial yarns, as well as "blanks" waiting to be colored.
My next step to celebrate Socktoberfest is to cast on for Neal's 2005 Christmas socks. He wants them to be green and silver (the Dalegarn Heilo in the front), and just above his ankle. I've joined My First Toe Ups and plan to cast on today.
By the way, there is enough yarn there for at least 26 pair of socks. And I just realized that I forgot a couple of skeins of Cascade Fixation. I don't need to purchase sock yarn for at least a year, I'd say (but I'm sure I will before then)!
