Obsession

With a little free time on my hands, I have been obsessing over sock yarn. I guess with the rainy and chilly weather last week and The Holiday on constant rotation in the dvd player, I am ready for a seasonal change [among other things]. Here's just a sample of what's in the stash.

Koigu KPPM - I bought this colorway at Purl Soho wih the intention of knitting something "fun" for my sister. I decided on the Monkey socks from the Winter 2006 Knitty. I am loving the way these are coming out. I just may keep them for myself. ;-).

Here is a close up of the pattern:


... and some more Koigu KPPM bought at School Products. I was thinking about some Jaywalker's for this colorway.

... and some Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in "Bitter Sweet" that I bought on ebay from Yarnbow [LOVE THEM!] I have started Jaywalkin' with it.


I have to pace myself before I wind up all tangled in yarn ... and broke. LOL.

I love that one sweater Cameron wears in that movie.

You've got some serious sock love going on there!

Mebbe you might end up broke, but what pretty yarn! Monkeys are a great pattern to knit too.
